Julius Caesar



The New York Times reviews RSC's Julius Caesar

Set in contemporary Africa with a cast of highly acclaimed, black British actors, this groundbreaking production of Shakespeare's great political thriller tells the story of the conspiracy against Caesar, his assassination, and the defeat of his conspirators. The production, directed by the RSC's new artistic director Gregory Doran, depicts the struggle for democracy as well as the story of two men united by an explosive act of political violence.

Having opened to five-star reviews in the UK last year, the Columbus run is the production's only North American engagement following its New York City premiere in April.

This highly praised production of Julius Caesar comes to central Ohio as part of a unique collaboration between The Ohio State University and the Royal Shakespeare Company. The two world-class organizations recently expanded their ongoing international relationship, with the goal of bringing more RSC productions to the United States. CAPA is partnering with Ohio State to produce the show in Columbus.

The Royal Shakespeare Company in America is presented in collaboration with The Ohio State University.

Presented by The Ohio State University and CAPA
