National Theatre Live: Julius Caesar

National Theatre Live: Julius Caesar

A FILM BY: Nicholas Hytner
WRITTEN BY: William Shakespeare
STARRING: Ben Whishaw, Michelle Fairley, David Calder, David Morrissey

Ben Whishaw (THE DANISH GIRL, SKYFALL) and Michelle Fairley (GAME OF THRONES) play Brutus and Cassius, David Calder (THE LOST CITY OF Z) plays Caesar and David Morrissey (THE WALKING DEAD) is Mark Antony.

Caesar returns in triumph to Rome and the people pour out of their homes to celebrate. Alarmed by the autocrat’s popularity, the educated élite conspire to bring him down. After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets of the capital.

Nicholas Hytner’s production will thrust 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.

“A pulse-quickening political tragedy.” -- Evening Standard

“Visceral and politically urgent.” -- The Guardian
