Its great themes-the wages of faction and conspiracy, the chaos that follows the downfall of a dictator-are as central to public life now as they were to Elizabethan England." -SOHRAB AHMARI, The Wall Street Journal The Burbage Theatre Company presents a play about men who make mistakes; great men whose choice to act was met with grave consequences. In 44 BC on March 15th, certain few members of the Roman senate, as a means of preventing the ascension of a dictator, murdered Julius Caesar, one of the great rulers of the ancient world. Lead by the infamous Marcus Brutus in the name of honor and the general good, the faction of senators stabbed Caesar thirty three times on the floor of the Senate. What resulted was civil discord and the dividing of a great empire. Shakepeare's masterpiece is a discourse on how politics can be personal, and how political ideals, while honorable in theory, are rarely met as such. "When in human history has there not been a war or an unscrupulous politician… This powerful play is about self-deluded warrior-politicians; it is filled with conspiracy, ambition, corruption, betrayal and tyranny. And if the leaders are vicious, the public, easily manipulated, is worse." - Toby Zinman, The Inquierer Julius runs Aug 21 - Sept 7 Tickets: $12-$15; preview performances (Aug 21,22) just $12. Discounts for groups of 10 or more, students and seniors. Tickets at

"And Then There Were None" by Agatha Christie - Ten guilty strangers are trapped on an island. One by one they are accused of murder; one by one they start to die. In this superlative mystery comedy statuettes of little indians on the mantel of a house on an island off the coast of Devon fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger. A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten "indians" met his death until there were none. Eight guests who have never met each other or their apparently absent host and hostess are lured to the island and, along with the two house servants are marooned there. A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead - poisoned. One down and nine to go! Can you predict who will be next? Can you predict who done it?
