I, Cinna (The Poet) 

I, Cinna (The Poet) is a drama written and directed by Tim Crouch and starring Jude Owusu, inspired by the RSC's 2012 production of Julius Caesar, directed by Gregory Doran.

Cinna is a minor character in Julius Caesar, who is killed by the mob simply for having the same name as one of the conspirators. This powerful one-man play explores Cinna's experience of the political unrest going on around him as well as the purpose of writing, and how (and if) to engage in activism.

First Encounters With Shakespeare: King Lear 

In the summer of 2012, a company of nine actors and director Tim Crouch came together to create a production of King Lear specifically for young audiences. It toured to schools across England before touring to New York's Park Avenue Armory, where the production was filmed.

This project was made possible thanks to the Thompson Family Foundation and the Sidney E. Frank Foundation. 

The stage play was developed through the support of Arts Council England and the Ohio State University.
