Julius Caesar

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Risa Brainin
May 26 — Jun 18, 2006
Shakespeare Glen, Forest Park

Julius Caesar returns triumphantly to Rome having defeated his enemy, Pompey. Many Roman senators, however, suspect him of wanting to become Emperor. Their chances of forestalling Caesar rest on being able to convince Marcus Brutus, one of the most upright men in Rome and Caesar’s friend, that Caesar is a danger to the state.
