The Assassination of J.Kaisaa

The Assassination of J.Kaisaar is a re-imagined version of Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra set in a dystopian future but with American lingo - like Tony Soprano meets Mad Max. The theme is that political assassination can have many unintended consequences re: the conspirators Brutus and Cassius thought they were saving the free men (and women) of the Republic but instead put the nails into its coffin because the assassination brought Octavius to the fore who would go on to become the first Roman Emperor (Augustus). So the days of the Republic with free men (and women) deciding their own fates had ended with Caesar's murder with the situation being analogous to the take over by the corporatist state.
