Cygnet Theatre

By William Shakespeare. Presented by The Actor’s Wheel.

‘Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war’

The Actor’s Wheel return with a contemporary and striking production of Shakespeare’s searing political thriller.  Caesar returns in triumph to Rome and the people take to the streets.  But not all the voices of the city are raised in celebration.  Fearing the rise of tyranny, what should the honourable citizen do?  Shakespeare’s searing political thriller asks, if violence can ever be justified in opposing tyranny? What does freedom cost?

“Horrifying yet captivating… a production with real depth and dimension” (King Lear tour 2017)

Excellent work from The Actor’s Wheel. Shakespeare as you have never seen it before.” (The Winter’s Tale tour 2016)

“Watching them perform is like stepping into a dream…Each time you think they must be running out of ideas, the next scene surprises you further” (Faustus tour 2015)
