Event Series Event Series: Julius Caesar

‍Julius Caesar. A divisive leader who holds awesome power.

Concerned that Caesar poses a threat to democracy, revolutionaries take the violent decision to murder him. As the world spins out of control, chaos, horror, and superstition rush in to fill the void. Civil war erupts and a new leader must rise: but at what cost?

Shakespeare’s thriller exposes the ambiguous morality in trying to shift power. As we rage against the crises surrounding us, how far will each of us go for our beliefs?

Join Icarus Theatre Collective for a boldly modern re-telling, perfect for newcomers to Shakespeare. Set in the near future, we combine state-of-the-art digital technology, fully integrated Creative Captioning to enhance clarity for deaf and hearing audiences, and classic theatrical magic to highlight parallels between the gossip and doom-mongers of Ancient Rome and the violence caused by fake news, celebrity culture, and conspiracy theories.

Directed by award-winning director Max Lewendel as the latest in a series of plays devised to unite theatre fans from the hearing, deaf community, as well as the online generation.‍

All in original verse, with Creative Captioning for not only deaf audiences, but those new to Shakespeare, English as a second language, etc.
