“Think Mad Max’s Imperator Furiosa and her kick-ass sisterhood deciding to put on a show in a blasted desertscape. […] full of compact power and contained anger […]”

The Tragedy of Julius Caesar (2016)

The Play

Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Julius Caesar investigates the fine line between personal ambition and the general good. The play presents a view of Roman politics and civil war where no one is free from reproach, and all are mired in the unnerving moral ambiguity of civil conflict. With an all-female cast, Repercussion’s 2016 production of Julius Caesar also explored the relationship between gender and power.
