A group of Canada’s greatest classical actors come together in Toronto for three weeks only in this brand new, contemporary production of Julius Caesar. The Siminovitch Prize-winning director Chris Abraham partners with the team at Groundling Theatre Company to bring Shakespeare to the intimate Guloien Theatre at Streetcar Crowsnest for the first time.
In the most powerful state on earth, a coalition of educated elites conspire to bring down their authoritarian leader. But after his assassination, a civil war erupts, as ghost, revolutionaries, and politicians contend with what they’ve done, and what’s to come.
Featuring: Graham Abbey, Sarah Afful, Walter Borden, Ryan Cunningham, Michelle Giroux, Dion Johnstone, Jani Lauzon, Diego Matamoros, Jim Mezon, Moya O’Connell, & André Sills.
