William Shakespeare, Directed by Richard Mazda

Pick up your baseball bat, sharpen your butterfly knife, shine up your brass knuckles and choose a side as The Queens Players explore this classic story of politics, power, and betrayal.

The third installment of director Richard Mazda’s gangland Shakespeare series brings you into the center of Rome, where civil strife and political infighting have ripped apart the very fabric of the fragile democracy. Resources are scarce, battle lines are drawn, and even those with the noblest intentions can’t escape without blood on their hands.

This production's environmental style makes use of the multiple performance spaces at The Secret Theatre, carrying the audience through the play’s desolate, battle-scarred world. It is a Julius Caesar that is not just seen, but experienced, with an immediacy that is in keeping with Shakespeare's timeless drama.
