Julius Caesar - Firebird Summer of Power 2019

Share this event:

Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare
Directed by Leo Lion

"Ordinance and first decree turns to the law of children" in this bright and wild new staging of the classic tragedy, which places the events of Julius Caesar in a vast playroom full of kids.

The citizens of ROAM, a city-state founded in the eerie absence of adult supervision, navigate the trials of running a society, grappling with questions of power and authority. The raw and bloody spirit of Shakespeare's text haunts this dark childish fantasy, pushing its newly-incarnated characters toward their most innate ambitions: to be loved, to be feared, to feel protected. With a cast of teens portraying a city of children just slightly younger, this production seeks to vitalize the passions of the play by examining them free of adult inhibition, and to remind us that our own children are and will be faced with the same questions that the Romans struggled to reconcile.

Age Advisory: This play contains some violent content. Recommended for Ages 9+, at audience's discretion.

JULIUS CAESAR is the first production in The Firebird Project's SUMMER OF POWER intensive series, which examines how we get power, how we lose it, how it changes us, and how it shapes community. It will be followed by AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE by Henrik Ibsen on Aug 23 - 24th.
