Julius Caesar

-

Shakespeare’s Globe return to Cambridge Arts Theatre with a startlingly relevant new production of the epic tragedy Julius Caesar.

Conspiracy to kill, cunning rhetoric, a divisive fight for Greatness: Ancient Rome has never felt closer to home. When Cassius and Brutus decide Rome’s leader Caesar poses a political threat to their beloved country, there’s only one solution.

Diane Page, Director: “I’m so excited to bring my production of Julius Caesar straight from the Globe Theatre in London to tour across the UK. UK. These past few years have revealed more than ever how betrayal, division, and cunning rhetoric are not just traits belonging to Ancient Rome.  Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar will be on the road this summer and I look forward to visiting these fantastic venues.”

Diane won the JMK Award in 2021 for Statements after an Arrest under the Immorality Act
(Orange Tree Theatre). Diane returns to the Globe after assistant directing Bartholomew
Fair, 2019. Her previous directing work includes Out West, In Love and Loyalty (Lyric
Hammersmith) and Ghost Stories (Associate Director West End and Tour). Julius Caesar is
designed by Khadija Raza with Jesse Haughton-Shaw as Dramaturg and Indiana Lown
Collins as Assistant Director.

The touring ensemble comprises of: Charlotte Bate playing Cassius, Omar Bynon playing
Decius / Soothsayer, Anna Crichlow playing Brutus, Amie Francis playing Calpurnia, Cash
Holland playing Portia / Murellus, Jack Myers playing Caska / Octavius, Samuel Oatley
playing Mark Antony, and Dickon Tyrrell playing Julius Caesar.

Shakespeare’s Globe opened in 1997, founded by actor and director Sam Wanamaker. It is a reconstruction of the Globe Theatre, an Elizabethan playhouse for which William Shakespeare wrote his plays. The original theatre was built in 1599, destroyed by a fire in 1613, rebuilt in 1614 and was then demolished in 1644.
