Essential Theatre

SUMMARY

Fresh from successful seasons at The Adelaide and Melbourne Fringe Festivals (Australia), Essential Theatre are excited to share their relevant and gritty take on Shakespeare’s tragedy with Edinburgh audiences. The production has been edited to a taut 70 minutes - this is Shakespeare at it’s best.

This story will be told by six tenacious women.  In a genre that is generally dominated by male characters, it’s a welcome and glorious surprise to see strong females taking centre stage, speaking mighty verses about freedom, leadership and destiny.  

Julius Caesar has never been more relevant. Director Fleur Kilpatrick says “With each news bulletin this play feels newer and more connected to the world around us”. As current political figures are either heroes or traitors, there has never been a more apt time for Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar to be played out. 

Admission: £8(£6)
