Julius Caesar

Written by William Shakespeare
Adapted and directed by Adrienne Costello

7.30pm, 5-20 October
Spring Hill Reservoir
"Really, really powerful" - Ride Home Review

"A unique and fascinating night out at the theatre" - Scenestr

"A fascinating and successful experiment" - Stage Whispers
This was the most unkindest cut of all.

So says the man who would be leader!

Who has the right to power and who has the right to challenge it?

In this age of the politics of personality,  heartBeast’s ‘Julius Caesar’ holds a mirror up to power and cracks it to reveal the dirty hands that want to grasp it.

The power plays and manipulations are teased out within the dark confines of the Spring Hill Reservoir, as performers and audience alike become enmeshed in the tangles of hidden motives.
