    Julius Caesar tickets

    Shakespeare’s startling, timely political thriller

    The Globe Theatre becomes a cunning political arena in a new production of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. This enduringly popular tragedy is as relevant as ever, and promises to cast a new light on the modern political landscape.

    When Cassius and Brutus decide that Roman leader Julius Caesar is a threat to the country, they conspire to assassinate him. As all parties scramble to justify their actions and play for public favour, Mark Antony turns the mob against the conspirators.

    Shakespeare's Julius Caesar play has been performed around the world in many contexts, and in this new production develops like a modern political thriller. Director Diane Page brings the tale of conspiracy, manipulation and revolution to the Globe Theatre, with the ancient Roman tale feeling incredibly familiar and timely

    The Julius Caesar cast includes Charlotte Bate as Cassius, Anna Crichlow as Brutus, Dickon Tyrell as Julius Caesar, Samuel Oatley as Mark Antony, Cash Holland as Portia/Murellus, Amie Francis as Calpurnia, Omar Bynon as Decius/Soothsayer and Jack Myers as Casca/Otavius.

    An enjoyable afternoon but not Shakespeare as we know it. With just the 8 actors it is hard for them to manifest the enormity of two armies and so much is lost. Understandable for touring but it feels a little "small" and lacking in impact for the Globe.

    Too much attention paid to modern sensibilities that are completely counter productive to the central messages of the play. The actors worked very hard but they couldn't rescue what was badly conceived. Still a good afternoon out though.

    The acting is really good. There are only 8 in the cast, so they work really hard. There are some problems with the Direction that materially change the messages in the play - which is very problematic.

    It looks like someone, the director, didn't understand this play. Unfortunately, there are now going to be masses of school children who don't understand it either. The kids were very lively, very verbally responsive, but often because they misunderstood the relationships. Originally, two male senators arranging a meeting over dinner got a whoop as it was now seen as a romantic meeting (Cassius now a woman). Men fighting women got very loud responses. The points in the play are missed because of the gender misunderstanding that had been recklessly introduced. A travesty of understanding, but some really good acting performances.

    They had to keep Mark Antony's multiple repetitions of "Brutus is an Honorable Man" as it is key language cleverly used to question someones honour - the problem is, in this production Brutus is a woman - married to Portia - apparently same sex marriage existed in Rome - not at all something that took decades/centuries of campaigning to achieve. How to utterley mess with childrens' minds (masses of school children in the audience) and devalue a play that has lasted for centuries. The actors tried very hard, but the point was lost.

    Some good performances (hence 2 stars), however, there are serious problems with this production. A play about politics - power and perception, becomes a play about gender politics with some unforgivable choices in direction. Brutus and Cassius are not only played by women (no issue there) but the characters are changed to women - which changes everything, in all of it: trampling over the important messages Shakespeare has. It becomes a battle of the sexes, the victors white men, the losers treacherous, dishonourable women. Unforgivable.
