WIN: Tickets to see Shakespeare's Julius Caesar
PUBLISHED: 10:00 23 April 2015
A SELL-OUT production of Shakespeare's historical play Julius Caesar will be screened at the Odeon.
The show was first performed at the Globe Theatre in London, and starred George Irving in the title role.
In the show, Roman general Caesar returns from war as a virtual dictator, but Brutus and his allies want to curb his ambition.
After carrying out his assassination, the conspirators must deal with a new power bloc, led by Mark Antony and Caesar’s nephew Octavius.
The play, based on historical events, features Brutus’ struggle with his honour, patriotism and friendship.
The tense drama reveals the range of emotions felt by men in powerful positions.
The play was written by Shakespeare in about 1599, and was one of the first to be performed at the Globe Theatre.
Brutus is portrayed by Tom McKay, alongside Joe Jameson as Octavius and Luke Thompson as Mark Antony.
The production includes authentic Renaissance costumes and staging.
It will be screened at the Odeon at 7.30pm on April 30.
The Mercury has teamed up with the Odeon to offer two readers a pair of tickets to the screening.
