Shakespeare's take on the events leading up to Julius Caesar's assassination and the political intrigue surrounding the demise of the Roman republic
Set in ancient Rome in the year 44 BCE, Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar recounts the last days of the illustrious dictator, and the civil unrest, suspicion and divided loyalties that drove a group of Conspirators to take him down.
The all-conquering military general, Julius Caesar, has become an ever more powerful figure among the ruling elite of Rome. Fearing his growing power, and amid evidence of an increasingly oppressive regime, a group of high-ranking noblemen conspire to assassinate him—ostensibly, for the good of Rome and its citizens. Despite a soothsayer, his wife and strange goings-on all auguring misfortune for Caesar, the arrogant dictator ignores the warnings. He is attacked and killed at the Senate by the conspirators but their decision to remove the tyrant precipitates a cataclysmic civil war that will mark the beginning of the end for the almost 400-year old Roman republic.
"There is a tide in the affairs of men. Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;"
