Following the success of King Lear in 2021, Melbourne Shakespeare Company returns to fortyfivedownstairs with their exhilarating contemporary reimagining of Shakespeare’s original political thriller Julius Caesar.
A divisive leader whose desire for power poses a threat to republicanism is violently assassinated. Civil war erupts, and through the chaos, a new leader must rise to fill the void.
Directed by Richard Murphet with design from Tony nominated designer Dale Fergusen, Julius Caesar is destined to be a striking new production you won’t want to miss.
