This Summer, Shakespeare’s Globe brings a startlingly relevant new production of epic tragedy Julius Caesar to Hexham as part of their nationwide Globe on Tour series.

Conspiracy to kill, cunning rhetoric, a divisive fight for Greatness: Ancient Rome has never felt closer to home. When Cassius and Brutus decide Rome’s leader Caesar poses a political threat to their beloved country, there’s only one solution…

Shakespeare’s Globe and award-winning Director Diane Page bring this brutal tale of ambition, incursion, and revolution to life.

‘Th’ abuse of greatness is when it disjoins
Remorse from power.’
Act II, scene 1
