La Boite Theatre Presents JULIUS CAESAR, 2/18-3/20

By: Feb. 18, 2011

From the team that brought you Hamlet comes Julius Caesar.

La Boite's 2010 sell-out Hamlet was called "the most downright gripping Shakespeare production seen in Brisbane for many a year" (The Courier-Mail).

Now director David Berthold illuminates the life-and-death struggle for power in Rome. This gutsy contemporary version of Shakespeare's greatest thriller is alive with assassination plots, conspiracy, bloody murders, and a brand new musical score.

Caesar's growing ambition threatens the Republic, so the knives are out. But when Caesar is killed, chaos engulfs the city. Alliances are formed and faked, leaders are made and sacrificed, and ghosts stalk.

You better watch your back...

Performed in-the-round, it features some of Queensland's most exhilarating actors inhabiting some of Shakespeare's most famous characters - Brutus, Cassius, Mark Anthony and their friends and foes, with music by the incomparable Steve Toulmin (Hamlet).
