‘How many times
Shall this our lofty scene be acted o’er
In states unborn and accents yet unknown’

The dictator must be assassinated. But who will replace him? In a struggle between tyranny and mob rule three men must decide between public duty and private will.

Shakespeare’s great political thriller Julius Caesar finds dark contemporary echoes in modern Africa, directed by RSC Artistic Director Designate Gregory Doran.

Originally created as part of the World Shakespeare Festival, this new production featuring Paterson Joseph as Brutus, Cyril Nri as Cassius, Ray Fearon as Mark Antony and Jeffery Kissoon as Caesar comes to The Lowry as part of a national tour following runs in Stratford-upon-Avon and London’s West End.

The @theRSC and @WSF2012 Twitter feeds will tweet about the show using #RSCCaesar.
