Julius Caesar

Until January 20, 2018

Shakespeare's play of ultimate betrayal.

Why See Julius Caesar?

Death, Passion and Betrayal

Who will win the race to claim the empire? Julius Caesar returns from war, the all-victorious emperor of Rome but mutiny is rumbling through the corridors of power. This Shakespeare classic is full of spin and betrayal, who will come out alive.

What's Julius Caesar about?

This tense play follows the plot to overthrow Julius Caesar from his throne. The plot follows the psychological struggle of Brutus as he, along with Cassius, plans the ultimate betrayal. Brutus' inner confliction between patriotism, honour and friendship is at the centre of this tragedy.

As part of the RSC's Rome Season at the Barbican Centre in London, Julius Caesar is the second instalment in the 2017 winter season. Angus Jackson, director of previous sell-out performances for the RSC, is taking direction of Rome MMXVII. This season will take a chronological approach to Shakespeare's Roman tragedies, following some key characters the season will document the rise and fall of the worlds biggest empire.
