About The Assassination of Julius Caesar As Told By William Shakespeare and George Bernard Shaw

What does it take to get rid of a bad leader? What does it cost to make the right choice?

The Assassination of Julius Caesar as told by William Shakespeare and George Bernard Shaw throws two classic plays into the boxing ring and interrogates the enduring truths about power, governance, and rebellion raised by both playwrights. Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar asks whether there can be such a thing as ethical violence — can a society that tries to save democracy with anti-democratic bloodshed retain its moral core? Shaw’s Caesar and Cleopatra, a rarely-performed comedy, tries to understand the personal cost of being a leader — what do we have to give up in the search for power? Considered together, these two plays thrill anew in Bedlam’s playful, inventive, immediate, and fully devised response to Shakespeare and Shaw.
