Loved by the people, Caesar’s power is growing – which is dangerous if you live in a world driven by ego and idealism. Those who rise too fast must be dealt with. For the good of the country. For the good of those who wish to be rulers themselves.

Coming to The Joan on 5 and 6 October - Bell Shakespeare’s Associate Director, James Evans, will direct a production that’s seething with rage, leaving audiences breathless at how quickly violence reveals the fragility of democracy.

Set in ancient Rome, the play examines the climate of society at the time - emerging from war with the sons of Pompey and on the brink of ‘modernity’. Julius Caesar is Shakespeare’s most overt exploration of politics and power – and is particularly relevant in today’s treacherous times. Shakespeare explores what happens when fear infects a society and deals with issues that are urgently contemporary, inviting audiences to draw comparisons between themselves and their society.

Starring Kenneth Ransom (Gods of Egypt, Belvoir’s Prize Fighter) as Caesar, this production will open up opportunities for audiences to experience the tension between aspiration and ambition, the triumphal entrances and brutal exits, as it is all laid on the line for Rome.

Stand witness to the assassination that leads to a life and death struggle for power in the Republic. Citizens’ mutiny, Mark Antony schemes, and the fate of Rome hangs in the balance…
