Julius Caesar’s growing power and incomparable ambition fuel a contingent of Roman politicians to plot the dictator’s assassination and purge the Republic of the would-be tyrant. The conspirators’ success in this seemingly patriotic act, however, thrusts Rome into outright chaos. One of the greatest of Shakespeare’s tragedies, Julius Caesar is a staggering and chilling political thriller that calls into question the ethical responsibilities of elected officials: To what extent may they blur the line between right and wrong to ensure the well-being of the people? A timely and heedful account of history, Julius Caesar earns its place in the theatrical canon with every telling.
