A great empire teeters on the edge of civil war. Caesar is triumphant on the battlefield, but in the halls of government his consolidated power is feared. Lest Rome’s Republic becomes another dictatorship, a group of conspirators assassinate Caesar, and Rome descends into chaos. Shakespeare’s epic and thrilling tragedy demonstrates the challenges of sustaining a republic, the timeless nature of propaganda, and the power of self-interest and betrayal to turn a government against its people and politics into a brutal blood sport.
