About Imperium: II. Dictator

Cicero has retired from politics. Julius Caesar – dictator, and commander of Rome’s armies – is assassinated. Cicero sees his death as an opportunity to restore the Republic but the assassins, Brutus and Cassius, dither as power in Rome begins to fall into the lap of Mark Antony.

Determined to prevent Antony imposing a military dictatorship on Rome, Cicero forms an unlikely alliance with the 19-year-old great-nephew and heir of Julius Caesar. Confident that he can control the boy and use him to destroy Mark Antony, Cicero sets out to save the Republic.

More information about Imperium: II. Dictator

The second of two parts, “Imperium: II. Dictator” is a story of tyranny, greed, tactics, and violence. During the disarray of civil war, Julius Caesar has a tyrannic grasp over the city of Rome and has his sights set on the horizon to expand his empire. Brutus and Cassius decide to end his reign of terror and assassinate him. With Caesar removed, Mark Antony assumes a position of authority. With the people rioting in the streets, and the unelected leader trying to guide them through these turbulent times, Cicero forms an allegiance with Octavian (Caesar’s adopted son and heir). As democracy crumbles into chaos and the two sides prepare for battle, who will the people support to rule their city? Cicero and his protégé or Mark Antony?

Mike Poulton’s gripping adaptation of Robert Harris’ novels is both exhilarating and timely. Split into three acts, this political thriller has, according to WhatsOnStage, “all the panache and pace of a Netflix box set.”

All persons under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

What to watch for

Anthony Ward’s set features a pair of eyes peering out from a mottled mosaic as if Caesar is gazing down on the chaos following his assassination. A large orb looms above, and it glows red during moments of heightened tension.

Several actors are recast into different roles in the second part of this two-part play, which draws interesting parallels between the characters.

Julius Caesar’s assassination was carried out by approximately 60 men — he was stabbed 23 times!
