Synopsis

Julius Caesar: A fast-moving thriller about a struggle for democracy, William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar is also a love story between two men united by an explosive act of political violence.

Based on the Royal Shakespeare Company’s acclaimed stage production, Gregory Doran‘s film sets the action in post-independence Africa. With echos of the recent overthrow of dictators during the ‘Arab Spring’, the production explores the implications of political assassination and the unpredictability of its aftermath.

Shot on location and also in the RSC’s theatre at Stratford-upon-Avon, Julius Caesar is a sumptuous film that features the original cast of a startling and arresting production. Actors include Paterson Joseph as Brutus, Jeffry Kissoon as Caesar, Cyril Nri as Cassius, and Ray Fearon as Mark Antony.

Coram Shakespeare Schools Foundation is a cultural education charity which works with children (particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds) to develop essential life skills through the unique power of Shakespeare.
