Caesar returns from war, all-conquering, but mutiny is rumbling through the corridors of power.

Our Rome season in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre opens with the politics of spin and betrayal turning to violence. Following his sell-out productions of Tom Morton-Smith’s Oppenheimer (2014) and James Fenton’s adaptation of Don Quixote (2016), Season Director Angus Jackson steers the thrilling action as the race to claim the empire spirals out of control.

The play will then transfer to the Barbican for a limited London Season from 24 November 2017 - 20 January 2018.
