NT LIVE SCREENING OF JULIUS CAESAR
26 & 28 April from 8pm to 11pm

Ben Whishaw (The Danish Girl, Skyfall, Hamlet) and Michelle Fairley (Fortitude, Game of Thrones) play Brutus and Cassius, David Calder (The Lost City of Z, The Hatton Garden Job) plays Caesar and David Morrissey (The Missing, Hangmen, The Walking Dead) is Mark Antony. Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London.

Caesar returns in triumph to Rome and the people pour out of their homes to celebrate. Alarmed by the autocrat’s popularity, the educated élite conspire to bring him down. After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets of the capital.

Nicholas Hytner’s production will thrust 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.



★★★★ “Tremendously gripping. Unfolds like a chic, glossy spy thriller” Time Out

★★★★ “A star-studded political cataclysm for our times” Daily Telegraph

★★★★ “A superb cast in a ferocious, immersive Julius Caesar” Sunday Times
