Description

Julius Caesar

by William Shakespeare

“Cowards die many times before their deaths—the valiant never taste of death but once.”

A powerful, dark depiction of the best-known assassination in human history, Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar dismantles a hierarchy of alleged loyalty manipulated by greed, power, and legacy. As Brutus struggles with his own inner traitors, a throng of conspirators convinces him to overthrow a friend for the sake of a vision—a sacrifice with a motive so pure that he, too, must be willing to die for it.

Marco Island students aged 14 to 17 breathe life into one of Shakespeare’s most iconic works. As a masterfully scripted tale of humanity’s abuses to and corruption of power, the student-actors reveal the brutality of ancient Roman politics and its effect on society, while drawing parallels to political tensions and power struggles still prevalent throughout the modern world. Exploring the impact of humanity on the ideological structure of democracy through the intricate relationship between Brutus and Caesar, the student-actors and their audience have a rare opportunity to rediscover the renowned play through this very special collaborative performance.
