‘Et tu, Brute?’
One of the most well-known lines in history is often all that people recall about the infamous Roman statesman Julius Caesar. But what led to this iconic death? Shakespeare illuminates the psychology behind the deeds of the famous conspirators, and brings to life a conflict that has fascinated people through the ages.
This modern adaptation leaves behind the battlefields of southern Italy, and instead focusses on the timeless power relationships between people trapped in the microcosm of youth, and the painful awakening to a reality of violence and its consequences.
