Esteemed actress Harriet Walter leads the exciting all-female cast in this new production of Shakespeare’s political thriller Julius Caesar.

Conspiracy. Assassination. Retribution.

The Bard’s Roman drama, written around 1599, is a tale of the conspiracy against Caesar, his assassination and the defeat of the conspirators, focussing on Marcus Brutus and his struggle to balance contradictory feelings.

Julius Caesar is directed by Mamma Mia! director Phyllida Lloyd, who returns to the Donmar Warehouse for the first time since she directed the hugely acclaimed Mary Stuart. In the theatre, her credits also include Six Degrees Of Separation, The Duchess Of Malfi and What The Butler saw.

Walter, who plays Brutus, worked alongside Lloyd on Mary Stuart, winning an Evening Standard Award for her performance. Her other Shakespearean stage appearances include Antony And Cleopatra and Much Ado About Nothing, while TV credits include Law And Order UK, Spools and Little Dorrit.

Frances Barber, who plays the title role, is another London stage regular, having appeared in productions including Madame De Sade, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest and King Lear.
