Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London, Nicholas Hytner’s production captures the celebration, conspiracy, grief and turmoil of the enduring Shakespearean tragedy. When Caesar returns triumphantly to Rome and wins the people’s hearts, he unwittingly puts himself in danger. Among those who turn against him are Marcus Junius Brutus, who conspires against Caesar for what he believes is the good of Rome. But regicide quickly causes chaos to reign down on the Empire.
Julius Caesar is one of several Shakespearean plays based on Roman history and is thought to be the first of the Bard’s works to be performed at the famous Globe Theatre. Despite its titular character, the play centres around the exploits of Brutus. It’s also known to bear playful links to linked to other plays, including Anthony and Cleopatra, which details the conflict between two characters – Mark Anthony and Octavius – as well as the tragedy, Hamlet, in which Polonius relates how he once took up the part Julius Caesar.
Ben Whishaw (The Danish Girl, Skyfall, Hamlet) and Michelle Fairley (Fortitude, Game of Thrones) play Brutus and Cassius, David Calder (The Lost City of Z,The Hatton Garden Job) plays Caesar and David Morrissey (The Missing, Hangmen, The Walking Dead) is Mark Antony.
