NT Live presents Julius Caesar

A live broadcast of National Theatre’s Julius Caesar will be screened at the Cope Auditorium on Thursday 22 March from 7pm.

Julius Caesar returns to Rome, and the people venture out of their homes to celebrate. Concerned about his popularity, the educated elite work together in an attempt to bring him down, but after his assassination a civil war erupts in the streets of the capital.

David Calder, (The Lost City of Z, The Hatton Garden Job) stars as Julius Caesar, Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones) is Cassius and Ben Whishaw (Hamlet, Skyfall) plays Brutus live from the Bridge Theatre in London alongside David Morrissey (The Missing, The Walking Dead) who portrays the role of Mark Antony. 

The Guardian describes Julius Caesar as “visceral and politically urgent” (★★★★), with Time Out commenting the show is “furiously exciting” (★★★★).

The performance has a certificate of 15. Please note the performance contains strobe lighting and has an expected running time of 2 hours and 15 minutes with no interval.

General tickets are £10, which can be booked online or at the LU Arts Box Office at Loughborough Town Hall on 01509 231914.
