Community Conversation: The Women of Julius Caesar – at 1pm
Join us at 1pm for a lively conversation with Dr. Judith Peller Hallett, a professor of the Classics at University of Maryland and an expert on the women of Rome. We’ll compare the “real political housewives” of Rome – Calpurnia and Portia, who are the wives of Caesar and Brutus. We’ll also discuss our director’s choice of interpreting Marc Antony and Octavius as women (Mar Antonia and Octavia). Meet some of the actors portraying these power-wielding leaders of Rome. Doors open at 12:45pm. Combine the conversation with a ticket to the 2pm performance.
By William Shakespeare
When a leader is no longer trusted, where is the line between patriotism and personal ambition? In this quintessential political thriller, Brutus weighs a role in an assassination conspiracy that will test his honor and loyalty. With its muscular language and bold intrigues, The Tragedy of Julius Caesar remains one of Shakespeare’s most-quoted dramas.
