Julius Caesar (2007-2008)

Pompey defeated, Julius Caesar returns to Rome, flushed with triumph. But Rome has changed, and talk of assassination lurks behind every column...

Cambridge University European Theatre Group's 50th anniversary production of one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies brings the political intrigue of Ancient Rome into a modern setting in which our barbarism and ambition are revealed in the relationships with those closest to us. Morality is forgotten in the lust for power, love is cast viciously aside, and the true nature of honour is finally realised.

This brilliant new production tours Europe in December 2007 before returning to the ADC Theatre, Cambridge, for a run from 15-19 January 2008.
