About the Play:

Political alliances face off in Julius Caesar, William Shakespeare's tragedy of democracy gone wrong. A triumphant leader is welcomed homed from war with honors, but some wonder: has he been given too much power? When general Julius Caesar's heroic magnetism tips the scale and threatens to undo four centuries of republican rule in Rome, a small group of Roman senators plot and carry out an assassination to put things right. But is their "right" any better? They soon find that bloodshed in the streets creates as many problems as it solves.

About the Playwright:

Arguably the greatest English-language playwright, William Shakespeare was a seventeenth-century writer and dramatist, and is known as the Bard of Avon. Under the patronage of Queen Elizabeth I, he penned more than 30 plays, 154 sonnets, and numerous narrative poems and short verses. Equally accomplished in histories, tragedies, comedy, and romance, Shakespeare's most famous works include Romeo and Juliet, HamletMacbeth, King Lear, The Taming of the Shrew, and As You Like It. Like many of his contemporaries, including Christopher MarloweShakespeare began his career on the stage, eventually rising to become part-owner of Lord Chamberlain's Men, a popular dramatic company of his day, and of the storied Globe Theatre in London. Extremely popular in his lifetime, Shakespeare's works continue to resonate more than three hundred years after his death. His plays are performed more often than any other playwright's, have been translated into every major language in the world, and are studied widely by scholars and students.
