‘Th' abuse of greatness is when it disjoins Remorse from power.’ Act II, scene 1
Shakespeare's Globe brings a startlingly relevant new production of epic tragedy Julius Caesar to Oxford this summer.
Conspiracy to kill, public broadcast of cunning rhetoric, a divisive fight for Greatness. Ancient Rome has never felt closer.
When Cassius and Brutus decide Rome’s leader Julius Caesar poses a political threat to their beloved country, there’s only one solution...
Shakespeare's Globe and award-winning Director Diane Page brings this brutal tale of ambition, incursion and revolution to life.
Performances will continue in all but the most extreme weather conditions, where it may be deemed unsafe for the production to continue.
As weather conditions can change, and forecasts inaccurate, the decision to cancel or postpone a performance may not be taken until the published start time. We ask that everyone arrives prepared for the expected weather condition. Refunds will only be offered if a performance is cancelled or postponed.
The Globe is now the leading place to celebrate our greatest playwright.
