About the Play

The election is over and Caesar has triumphed, but for how long?  Did you vote for Caesar? Is the country now in more danger? Which side will the mob support now? Stagecraft presents Shakespeare's famous historical drama that still reflects the political landscape of today. Following Julius Caesar's rise to power, the play centres on the moral dilemma for Brutus, as he joins a conspiracy led by Cassius to murder Caesar to prevent him from becoming dictator of Rome. Following Caesar’s death, Rome is thrust into a period of civil war, and the republic the conspirators sought to preserve is lost.
