Known for their bold, imaginative interpretations of classic plays, Shakespeare: Reloaded propose a brand new and boundarypushing adaptation of Julius Caesar, one of Shakespeare's most popular tragedies.

Set in a fantastical Rome populated by supernatural creatures, this adaptation explores the relationship between power and gender politics in a matriarchal society, whilst delivering a scathing depiction of the political circus of the contemporary climate.

 

The familiar characters of Caesar, Brutus, Mark Antony and Cassius, now reimagined as women, fight to manipulate each other, the court and the general public discourse. Populist leaders, conscience-stricken followers, semihuman slaves and otherworldly oracles are all set against one another and allegiances are made and broken, yet no one can escape the bitter truth that absolute power corrupts absolutely.
