Due to several scenes of a violent and bloody nature, and gunshots, this production is recommended for audiences 15+. Audiences should also be made aware that Julius Caesar contains strobe lighting.

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. Captured live from The Bridge Theatre, London.

Caesar returns in triumph to Rome and the people pour out of their homes to celebrate. Alarmed by the autocrat’s popularity, the educated élite conspire to bring him down. After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets of the capital.

Nicholas Hytner’s production will thrust the audience into the street party that greets Caesar’s return, the congress that witnesses his murder, the rally that assembles for his funeral and the chaos that explodes in its wake.

“Director Hytner delivers a visceral, politically urgent tragedy…an outstanding production” **** THE GUARDIAN.
“A star studded political cataclysm for our times..” **** THE TELEGRAPH.
“A superb cast in a ferocious, immersive JULIUS” ****SUNDAY TIMES.
