Using present-day Washington as a backdrop for this timeless historical drama, Chicago Shakespeare Theater presents a modern staging of one of Shakespeare's most admired, consistently performed and adaptable plays, Julius Caesar. Acclaimed British director Jonathan Munby—whose work has graced the stages of Royal Shakespeare Company and Shakespeare's Globe—ignites the fiery power of the most enduring political assassination in history. Within the uniquely personal setting of CST’s Courtyard Theater, audience members feel each spark of emotion as words are wielded like knives in Shakespeare’s epic tale of ambition, betrayal and consequence.
