Win a family ticket to Julius Ceasar at Dilston Hall
Oddsocks Productions are back at Dilston Hall, Corbridge with Julius Caesar. Going for Comedy Gold
2012 will be a summer to remember with Oddsocks’ Olympic themed toga-tastic Julius Caesar, bringing British culture and comedy together in a happy mix of high-energy performance and hilarity. The most famous political coup in literature is given the summertime Oddsocks treatment with much tearing of togas and swishing of roman swords.
Rome's creaking coalition is under strain as the nation's sporting games is held to honour Emperor Caesar. The Senators are having a right Roman wrestle with their conscience, Caesar is scared by the Soothsayer and the plebeians are ripe for revolt. Will the games be an expensive disaster? Will Caesar's stinking plebs be revolting? Find out when Oddsocks perform "Julius Caesar" as you’ve never experienced it before.
Oddsocks have over 20 years experience delighting audiences with their inspired approach to Shakespeare's plays and their trademark family friendly, madcap, slapstick style. Julius Caesar will be no different.
Suitable for all ages this open-air production will engage audiences with a heady mix of Shakespeare, audience participation, live music and lots of rollicking Roman comedy all brought together in a final epic battle scene. This is the best of British, open-air, entertainment so break-out the wine and picnic hampers, grab your friends and family and head for a venue near you for a summer night out to remember.
