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 and non-binary 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.
This new work features a powerful cast of Queensland actors including Chenoa Deemal, Billy Fogarty, Giema Contini, Bryan Probets and Will Carseldine.
Experience this sizzling reimagining of CAESAR with fresh eyes and an open mind.
CAESAR is at La Boite from July 23 to August 7 – book your tickets here!
