This Summer, we confront our own political landscape as Shakespeare’s epic tragedy Julius Caesar takes on startlingly new relevance in the Globe Theatre, and on tour across the UK. 

 Conspiracy to kill, public broadcast of cunning rhetoric, a divisive fight for Greatness. Ancient Rome has never felt closer to home.  

 When Cassius and Brutus decide Rome’s leader Julius Caesar poses a political threat to their beloved country, there’s only one solution...  

 Diane Page, winner of the 2021 JMK Award, brings Shakespeare’s brutal tale of ambition, incursion, and revolution to life in the Globe and on tour across the UK.

Performances by Globe on Tour will only be cancelled as a last resort if the weather means it’s unsafe for the actors to perform.
