"I love the name of honor more than I fear death."
When men feel they can no longer trust their leader, where is the line between patriotism and personal ambition? Caesar, the most popular general in Rome, is assassinated, leaving two men – the honourable Brutus and the ambitious Cassius – to divide the spoils. But they've acted without Mark Antony, Caesar's devoted follower and determined successor, and soon the world they have fought to preserve is brought to the brink of anarchy. Julius Caesar is a dazzling masterpiece of betrayal, violence, and perhaps most surprisingly — love.
Starting 30 minutes before each performance of Julius Caesar, an Orlando Shakes actor leads the audience through a discussion of the plot, themes, and major characters in the production.
