In this fast-paced political thriller, Shakespeare challenged us to find our humanity in a shockingly inhumane world.
Julius Caesar traced the plot against a brilliant leader, his brutal assassination, and the civil war that follows. Its characters were among Shakespeare’s most memorable: Marcus Brutus, the assassin-hero of the play; Marcus Antonius, his charismatic nemesis; Caesar himself, whose ghost still walks in parliaments, palaces, and public places all over the western world.
