The Ides of March

Theatre / Comedy
VIC
Scaled perth square
Time travel. Treachery. Togas!

When William Shakespeare travels back in time to ancient Rome to research his newest play he unwittingly finds himself a prime suspect in the murder of Julius Caesar. He and his faithful sidekick Cardenio are forced to use all their tact and cunning to evade the villainous senator Brutus, the leader of the conspirators who's desperate to throw the 'dirty foreigner' to the lions, and the trenchcoat-clad Inspector Detectivus of the Roman Politizia, who's hell-bent on cracking the case of the century.

Grab your swords and sandals and strap in for a fast, furious rollercoaster ride through space and time. This is ancient history like you've never seen before!

"One of the most drawn-out and hysterical takes on Caesar's death I can imagine" Shakespeare Oz, 2018.
