    Contact: Adrienne Gallo   401-781-2450   hall@cranstonlibrary.org
   

The Burbage Theatre Company presents a play about men who make mistakes; great men whose choice to act was met with grave consequences. In 44 BC on March 15th, certain few members of the Roman senate, as a means of preventing the ascension of a dictator, murdered Julius Caesar, one of the great rulers of the ancient world. Lead by the infamous Marcus Brutus in the name of honor and the general good, the faction of senators stabbed Caesar thirty three times on the floor of the Senate. What resulted was civil discord and the dividing of a great empire. Shakepeare’s masterpiece is a discourse on how politics can be personal, and how political ideals, while honorable in theory, are rarely met as such.  

Ticket prices are $12 each for this preview performance. The William Hall Library is handicapped accessible.

misc_none 3:00 PM  -  5:00 PM Julius Caesar presented by Burbage Theater Company @ Hall Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Adrienne Gallo   401-781-2450   hall@cranstonlibrary.org
   

The Burbage Theatre Company presents a play about men who make mistakes; great men whose choice to act was met with grave consequences. In 44 BC on March 15th, certain few members of the Roman senate, as a means of preventing the ascension of a dictator, murdered Julius Caesar, one of the great rulers of the ancient world. Lead by the infamous Marcus Brutus in the name of honor and the general good, the faction of senators stabbed Caesar thirty three times on the floor of the Senate. What resulted was civil discord and the dividing of a great empire. Shakepeare’s masterpiece is a discourse on how politics can be personal, and how political ideals, while honorable in theory, are rarely met as such.  

Ticket prices are $15 general admission/$12 for students and seniors. The William Hall Library is handicapped accessible.
