Caesar tells Shakespeare’s story of the fall of the Roman Republic, and the birth of the Empire.

Julius Caesar is known by many to be generous, powerful, a brilliant tactician, and a wise leader.

He is also known to be ambitious.

Fresh from his victory over his political rival and fellow Consul, Pompey the Great, Caesar returns to Rome with dreams of seizing the absolute power that he believes he deserves.

Many Romans rejoice to see this happen, but there are some who do not. Some Romans look to an old custom; when one man seeks to make himself a king, it is every citizen’s responsibility to see him dead.

Would this be an act of great treachery or great civil responsibility?

This is the story of the end of a centuries-old democracy and the birth of one of the most powerful Empires in human history.

Julius Caesar is one of Shakespeare’s more unique plays; a story without a clear hero or villain, where the tension comes from the political backdrop of the Roman Republic’s final days. A political thriller that tells the story of the conspiracy against Caesar, his assassination and the defeat of his conspirators.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
