20TH JANUARY - 15TH APRIL 2018
Design by Bunny Christie
All Scene All Props had the pleasure of working with Bunny Christie again for the Bridge Theatre's second premiere show JULIUS CAESAR.
The theatre's auditorium will be transformed for Nicholas Hynter's promenade staging of Shakespeare's polictical thriller. Audience members can choose from two ways of experiencing the production: sit-in-the-round and look onto the arena, or become part of the action and join the crowd of hundreds that stand amongst the street party greeting Caesar's triumphant return to Rome, the congress that witnesses his murder and the civil war that erupts in the wake of his assassination.
Main cast: Ben Whishaw as Brutus, Michelle Fairley as Cassius, David Calder as Caesar and David Morrissey as Mark Anthony.
Costumes by Christina Cunnigham, Lighting by Bruno Poet and Music by Nick Powell.
JULIUS CAESAR will run at the Bridge Theatre from 20th January until 15th April 2018. For more information and to book tickets, click here.
It will also be broadcast by National Theatre Live on 22nd March 2018.
Daily Mail: ***** 5 stars
WhatsOnStage: **** 4 stars
"The ripple and rhythms of [the crowds] movements, its attentive listening and reactions, led by actors and by a remarkably effective team of wranglers, give the production enormous dramatic punch."
Independent: ****4 stars
The Stage: **** 4 stars
"The audience members in the pit are a key part of the fabric of the production...It's like being at Shakepeare's Globe without the prospect of being rained on, coupled with a very middle-class most pit."
The Guardian: **** 4 stars
"There is also a genuine sense of anarchy to the post-assassination turmoil... Kate Waters as fight director, Bruno Poet on lighting design and Paul Arditti as sound designer turn the ensuing civil war into an affair of sense-bombarding horror."
Times: **** 4 stars
"It's two hours straight through, which adds to the intensity."
Time Out: **** 4 stars
"It's all tremendously gripping."
