Prague Shakespeare company presents Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare, directed by Guy Roberts.
Julius Caesar, a force unlike any the city has seen, returns in triumph to Rome and the people pour out of their homes to celebrate. Popular with the common people, outspoken, and irreverent, he seems obsessed with his own authority and achieving absolute power. A small band of the educated elite, devoted to the country’s democratic traditions, decide to bring him down. After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets. Shakespeare’s political masterpiece has never felt more contemporary. “The Ides of March” comes to Prague in Shakespeare’s classical play now celebrating its 400th anniversary from the date of its first publication as part of Shakespeare’s First Folio printed in 1623. Julius Caesar is a thrilling new English-language premiere production, directed by Prague Shakespeare Company Artistic Director Guy Roberts starring professional PSC actors from Europe, the UK and North America.
