Julius Caesar

Saturday 6 August I 6pm

Cremorne Gardens, Lots Rd, London, SW10 0QJ

Shakespeare's Globe on tour confronts our own political landscape as Shakespeare’s epic tragedy Julius Caesar takes on startlingly new relevance.

Conspiracy to kill, public broadcast of cunning rhetoric, a divisive fight for Greatness. Ancient Rome has never felt closer to home.

When Cassius and Brutus decide Rome’s leader Julius Caesar poses a political threat to their beloved country, there’s only one solution.

Diane Page, winner of the 2021 JMK Award, brings Shakespeare’s brutal tale of ambition, incursion, and revolution to life in the Globe and on tour across the UK.

‘Th’ abuse of greatness is when it disjoins
Remorse from power.’

– Act II, scene 1
