Shakespearean Play In The Playhouse
Contemporary civilisation as we know it has collapsed. Amidst the ruins and dust, a group of storytellers present Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar to warn of the perils of political corruption and greed.
Loyalty. Power. Conspiracy. Betrayal.
Through a dynamic and brutal portrayal, this rendition thrusts Shakespeare’s classic work into the twenty-first century. In a time of political megalomania and media frenzy, Shakespeare’s words hold striking relevance.
Directed by Jo Loth, Head of Drama at the University of the Sunshine Coast, and featuring a cast of local actors, this gripping reimagining of a canonical text is not to be missed!
