Beware the Ides of March! Rome teeters on the brink of civil war as Caesar’s ambition for a crown threatens the stability of the Republic. Part ghost story, part political murder thriller, ancient Rome comes to vivid life in ISC’s first ever mounting of one of the greatest hits of the Elizabethan stage.
This pared down version of the text immerses the audience in the multiplicities of the conspiracy to save Rome and even gives the spectators a voice in the action. Audience participation encouraged (but not enforced!)
Following select performances you are invited to stay afterwards for a special conversation with invited guests, the cast, directors David Melville & Melissa Chalsma.
