Julius Caesar

by William Shakespeare

Julius Caesar
March 9 – April 1, 2023

Join us as we explore Kathleen Akerley’s modernization of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar with an ensemble of nine actors. Witness a dismantling of the classic story that asks what determines historical outcomes: the ambition and speeches of a few or the shifting personalities and demands of the citizenry? Video and contemporary text will place this question squarely in post-2016 America.
