Globe On Tour 2022 West Horsley Place

 26 – 27 August West Horsley Place

T his Summer, we’re bringing our startlingly relevant new production of Shakespeare’s epic tragedy Julius Caesar to West Horsley Place, as part of our nationwide Globe on Tour series.

Conspiracy to kill, public broadcast of cunning rhetoric, a divisive fight for Greatness. Ancient Rome has never felt closer to home.

When Cassius and Brutus decide Rome’s leader Julius Caesar poses a political threat to their beloved country, there’s only one solution.

Diane Page, winner of the 2021 JMK Award, directs Shakespeare’s brutal tale of ambition, incursion, and revolution.

‘Th’ abuse of greatness is when it disjoins
Remorse from power.’

– Act II, scene 1

This production features depictions of war, self-harm and suicide. It also contains violence, stage blood and weapons including guns and knives.
