A timeless drama of intrigue, allegiance and conspiracy, Julius Caesar is the ultimate political thriller. Caesar’s triumphant return from war causes concern about one person’s pursuit of too much power. Machiavellian machinations result in resounding consequences and throw an empire into turmoil. Shakespeare’s politically-charged play reverberates through the ages and poses questions that we still seek answers to centuries later.
