Hytner’s inventive promenade staging thrusts the audience into the street party that greets Caesar’s return, the congress that witnesses his murder, the rally that assembles for his funeral and the chaos that explodes in its wake.

The cast is lead by David Calder (Widows, The Audience) as Caesar, Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark in the HBO series Game of Thrones) as Cassius, David Morrissey (Hangmen, AMC Series The Walking Dead) as Mark Antony and Ben Whishaw (The Crucible, Skyfall, London Road) as Brutus.

Also featuring are Adjoa Andoh, Rosie Ede, Leila Farzad, Fred Fergus, Wendy Kweh, Mark Penfold, Abraham Popoola, Sid Sagar, Nick Sampson, Hannah Stokely, Kit Young, Zachary Hart and Leaphia Darko.

Julius Caesar runs until 15 April 2018 at the Bridge Theatre.
