Wednesday, May 16, 2018, 7 p.m.
Ethel M. Barber Theater
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 thrust the 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.
The production stars Ben Whishaw, Michelle Fairley, David Calder and David Morrissey.
