2009: Lucy Bailey production
Lucy Bailey made her RSC debut to direct the RSC Ensemble with Sam Troughton as Brutus, John Mackay as Cassius and Greg Hicks in the title role.
The Arts Desk wrote that the production 'brings cinematic scope and contemporary gore to its treachery, demanding that its audience lend not only ears, but eyes, stomach and imagination to the action.'
After opening at The Courtyard Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon in May 2009, the production transferred to the Roundhouse, London in January 2010, and in 2011 played in the Lincoln Center, New York.
