Julius Caesar

18 August 2018 Albany Entertainment Centre

Presented by Bell Shakespeare and Albany Entertainment Centre

Brutus is suspicious. Cassius is conspiring. Caesar’s days are numbered.

Loved by the people, Caesar’s power is growing – which is dangerous if you live in a world driven by ego and idealism. 

Julius Caesar is Shakespeare’s political thriller, a masterpiece of intrigue and treachery. Stand witness to the assassination that leads to a life and death struggle for power in the Republic. Citizens mutiny, Mark Antony schemes, and the fate of Rome hangs in the balance. 

Bell Shakespeare’s Associate Director, James Evans, will direct a production that’s seething with rage, leaving audiences breathless at how quickly violence reveals the fragility of democracy.
