'How many times
Shall this our lofty scene be acted o'er
In states unborn and accents yet unknown'
Theatre Royal in Newcastle once again welcomes the Royal Shakespeare Company this summer as part of the World Shakespeare Festival 2012. Julius Ceasar graces the stage between 19 and 28 July.
Opening to rave reviews for its superb new staging, this is Julius Cesar as you’ve never seen it before.
The dictator must be assassinated. But who will replace him?
Shakespeare's great political thriller finds dark contemporary echoes in modern Africa, directed by RSC Chief Associate Director Gregory Doran. Gregory's most recent production include Shakespeare's 'lost play' Cardenio re-imagined, as part of the RSC's 50th birthday celebrations, as well as his 2008 production of Hamlet.
The company includes Paterson Joseph as Brutus, Cyril Nri as Cassius, Ray Fearon as Mark Antony and Jeffery Kissoon as Caesar.
