Performed at The Bridge Theatre in London for National Theatre Live.
Alarmed by the autocratic Caesar's increasing power and hold on the Roman masses, a cabal of aristocrats conspire to eliminate him, setting the stage for civil war. Nicholas Hunter's production of William Shakespeare's timely history play features a cast of television and movie stars including Ben Whishaw (THE DANISH GIRL, SKYFALL, HAMLET), Michelle Fairley (GAME OF THRONES), David Calder (THE LOST CITY OF Z, THE HATTON GARDEN JOB) and David Morrissey (THE MISSING, HANGMEN, THE WALKING DEAD).
Hytner's production thrusts the audience into the street party that greets Caesar's return, the congress that witnesses his murder, the rally that assembles for his funeral and the chaos that explodes in its wake.
