Julius Caesar is Shakespeare’s political thriller, a masterpiece of intrigue and treachery.
Stand witness to the assassination that leads to a life and death struggle for power in the Republic.
Citizens mutiny, Mark Antony schemes, and the fate of Rome hangs in the balance.
Bell Shakespeare’s Associate Director, James Evans, directs a production that’s seething with rage, leaving audiences breathless at how quickly violence reveals the fragility of democracy.
Julius Caesar stars Kenneth Ransom (Gods of Egypt, Belvoir’s Prize Fighter) as Caesar, and features an ensemble cast including Ivan Donato (Richard 3), Emily Havea, Louisa Mignone, Nick Simpson-Deeks and Russell Smith.
The production will tour 27 venues around Australia and hits the Civic Theatre stage for two performances on Tuesday and Wednesday October 2 and 3 at 7.30pm
Julius Caesar is part of the our annual subscription season, which means the day before the show if any tickets remain unsold we will offer a student rush offer for $15.

Tim Rogers has been a very busy man. The past two years have seen the release of his solo album An Actor Repairs, a pile of You Am I touring, the publication of his first book Detours, his on-air hosting debut with Liquid Lunch on Double J and countless side projects.
And he’s not slowing down just yet. Tim Rogers’ next venture is the aptly-titled special run of shows The Endless Cycle Of Maintenance Tour.
Intimate and solo, on October 10 Tim Rogers will take to the Civic Theatre’s stage playing a range of songs from the past three decades.
Fans will hear favourites from Tim’s solo records, You Am I classics, familiar collaborations as well as some freshly-penned tunes.
Tim’s describes his current creative process: "To finish a batch of tunes that may or may not demand an LP, written when in the throes of stage fright behind real actors, when he should have been paying attention, old Bull Rogers needs the bitumen under his heels and some hasty, Faustian deals. Old songs, new songs, freshly constructed truths and libidinous lies. What could POSSIBLY go wrong. The Endless Cycle Of Maintenance has begun."
