Our Rome MMXVII Season of four Shakespeare plays will transfer to the Barbican theatre from 6 November.

Fresh from their run in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, you can see:

  • Coriolanus, directed by Angus Jackson, with Sope Dirisu in the title role as the fearless but reluctant leader
  • 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.”
