A CONTEMPORARY REIMAGINING
Alea iacta est (The die is cast) – Julius Caesar
Five acts. Five writers. One electrifying theatrical experience.
La Boite’s revitalised CAESAR is a sharp and playful take on Shakespeare’s most cut-throat political thriller with a modern script ripped straight from the headlines.
The iconic tragedy about a self-absorbed politician and the men raging for revenge is turned on its head in the hands of five fierce female-identifying playwrights. Over five acts, they tear apart the ideas of fear, control, power, honour and duty in a savage takedown of political failure, fake news, corrupt leadership and deafening demands for responsibility.
CAESAR stars a powerful cast of Queensland actors, including Chenoa Deemal, Billy Fogarty, Giema Contini, Bryan Probets and Will Carseldine, who no doubt bring a captivating new energy to this contemporary work.
Experience this sizzling reimagining of CAESAR with fresh eyes and an open mind.
