'Beware the ides of March.'
Opposing dictatorship and republicanism, private virtue and mob violence, Shakespeare’s tense drama of high politics reveals the emotional currents that flow between men in power.
When Caesar returns to Rome from the wars a virtual dictator, Brutus and his republican friends resolve that his ambition must be curbed – which in Rome can mean only one thing: the great general must be assassinated. But once the deed is done, the idealistic conspirators must reckon with the forces of a new power bloc, led by Mark Antony and Caesar’s nephew Octavius. When their armies close at Philippi, will Caesar’s ghost be avenged?

Julius Caesar at @The_Globe is bloody brilliant. A cheeky master class in acting. Go see it!

Julius Caesar at @The_Globe today. Hard to exaggerate how good the production & how special to be there. Now convinced JC=Bard's best play.
