Alea iacta est (The die is cast) – Julius Caesar

Five acts. Five writers. One electrifying theatrical experience.

La Boite’s revitalised CAESAR is a sharp and playful take on Shakespeare’s most cut-throat political thriller with a modern script ripped straight from the headlines.

The iconic tragedy about a self-absorbed politician and the men raging for revenge is turned on its head in the hands of five fierce female-identifying playwrights.

Over five acts, they tear apart the ideas of fear, control, power, honour and duty in a savage takedown of political failure, fake news, corrupt leadership and deafening demands for responsibility.

Adapted for a central voice, CAESAR stars an all-female-identifying and non-binary cast of Queensland actors, including Chenoa DeemalBilly Fogarty and Giema Contini, who each play a myriad of characters, bringing a powerful new perspective to this contemporary work.

Experience this sizzling reimagining of CAESAR with fresh eyes and an open mind.

CAESAR is at La Boite from July 17 to August 7 – book your tickets here
