Caesar returns in triumph to Rome and the people pour out of their homes to celebrate. Alarmed by the autocrat’s popularity, the educated élite conspire to bring him down. After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets of the capital.
Nicholas Hytner’s production will be in promenade, thrusting its audience into the street party that greets Caesar’s return, the congress that witnesses his murder, the rally that assembles for his funeral and the chaos that explodes in its wake. Ben Whishaw and Michelle Fairley play Brutus and Cassius, leaders of the coup, David Calder plays Caesar and David Morrissey is Mark Antony, who brings Rome back under control after the conspirators’ defeat.
A modern take on William Shakespeare’s political thriller, this exciting new production of Julius Caesar at The Bridge features an immersive Roman mob experience and innovative design. You can see the action from seats or be a part of the crowd, either way, fans and critics agree that Julius Caesar is a world-class production, bringing this iconic play into the 21st Century. Gender-switching traditionally male roles, introducing a live band as part of the cast and using the Trump Presidency as an influence, Julius Caesar’s story comes to life like never before.
Caesar is rising to power. Respected and feared, the more power he gains, the more others see him as a threat. Seeking to prevent him from becoming a tyrannical dictator, Brutus conspires to put an end to his reign, but at what cost?
Julius Caesar is the first show to perform in promenade style at the Bridge Theatre.
By the end of the show’s run, over 32,000 people will have experienced being a part of the Mob in the standing section of the theatre.
Cassius, a role usually portrayed by a man, is played by a woman, Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones). There are a number of roles in the play given this treatment.
