UA's Arizona Repertory Theatre presents Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare
directed by Brent Gibbs
Julius Caesar's growing ambition threatens the Republic, so the blades are
out. Leaders are made and then sacrificed as alliances are formed and just
as quickly shattered. Brutus is an honorable man who must navigate the
treacherous floods that threaten to overrun Rome. Which of the factions
are simply consumed by envy and a thirst for power and which are acting
in Rome's best interest? Shakespeare's captivating political thriller is alive
with assassination plots, murder and conspiracies as it asks the constant
question: "Who decides what is best for their country?" Violence.
