Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar in Cardiff, 12-16 Feb

‘Men at some time are masters of their fates. The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings.’

Shakespeare’s excellent study in ambition has never been more relevant than right now. This modern, site-specific adaptation drags the text into a political world not unlike our own, a world where women are finally permitted to ascend to the highest office. Performed in the round in Cardiff City Hall’s Council Chamber, with a mixed gender cast, this is an interpretation that interrogates our own political system and sheds new light on a text that has a timeless resonance.

Join us, and watch at close quarters the rise and fall of Marcus Brutus; an honest woman, misled.
