Our Rome MMXVII Season of Shakespeare plays is now playing at the Barbican theatre, London.
Fresh from their run in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, you can now see:
- Julius Caesar, directed by Angus Jackson, with Andrew Woodall in the title role
- Antony & Cleopatra, directed by Iqbal Khan, with Josette Simon as Cleopatra and Antony Byrne as Antony
- Titus Andronicus, directed by Blanche McIntyre - Shakespeare’s bloodiest play features David Troughton in the title role
Season Director Angus Jackson said: “We are going to present these plays not in the order that they were written but in the order that the stories happen.
“Beginning with Coriolanus - a semi-fictional character from 500 BCE - through to Julius Caesar and Antony & Cleopatra, legendary characters who lived just before the birth of Christ. And finally, Titus Andronicus, in which we see an entirely imagined Rome at the end of its dominance.”
