A riveting political thriller returns to the Hill in bloody spectacular fashion. Rome celebrates as Rome burns. A paradox that begs a question: Is it possible to love a country to death? Though you may know how those scales tip for Caesar, this is not an assassination story. Rather, it’s a thrilling and perilous journey down that metaphorical road to hell (which, it turns out, is paved with all sorts of intentions). About violence dispensed in the name of the republic, and where exactly that ball stops once it starts rolling. The unsteady heart of the matter is that opinions are infinite and often at odds. Their collision can be cataclysmic, whether the stakes are a life or a country. Or both.
Featuring Tracy Michelle Arnold, Jim DeVita, Gavin Lawrence & James Ridge
Runs June 19 - September 25
Political power struggles become deadly in one of the great Shakespearean tragedies. When Cassius and Brutus see the populist support around Julius Caesar, they worry that the people will crown this much-loved politician King of Rome, thereby overthrowing the republic. As their plans to temper Caesar’s power grow ever darker, allegiances and loyalty are put to the test. Thrilling and heartbreaking, it’s been 14 seasons since we’ve seen its like on our Hill.
