Donmar’s Julius Caesar At St. Ann’s Warehouse Oct 3-Nov 3
St. Ann’s Warehouse welcomes William Shakespeare re-told by Phyllida Lloyd October 3 to November 3. In the hard, grim surroundings of a women’s prison, the all-female actors in this bold production of Julius Caesar play inmates and guards performing an explosive, arresting production of Shakespeare’s most famous discourse on power, loyalty, and tragic idealism. Shakespeare’s themes are glaringly and touchingly heightened by the backdrop of female incarceration, a live thrash metal band, and the emotional nuances inherent to women playing men at their most vulnerable. The production serves up a classic story with a twist on perspective and while the production is not recommended for children under 14, all are welcome.
