The Observer on Julius Caesar

'Beware the Ides of March…’

A hero returns from battle, and the people take to the streets. But not all the voices of the city are raised in celebration. Some are whispering dissent. And some are foretelling disaster...

Shakespeare’s searing political thriller asks, when the majority choose a dangerous leader, what should the honourable citizen do?

Robert Hastie opens his first season with this fast paced, gripping tale of intrigue and betrayal.

Please note this production contains strobe lighting throughout, smoking, loud sound effects including gunshots, haze, smoke and scenes of violence which some may find distressing.

If you are studying Performing Arts or Drama in Sheffield you can get a free ticket for Julius Caesar. Find out more here.
