William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar is a blistering political thriller, as relevant today as ever. With its exploration of absolute power and creeping dictatorship, now is the perfect time to revisit this play.
Pitchy Breath Theatre Company are doing just that in this fast paced, modern dress, gender blind adaptation that brings this historical play firmly up to date, whilst still retaining the glorious language of our greatest writer.
Pitchy Breath will transport you to an alternative world, where the Roman Empire never fell, to tell the story of the murderous conspiracy against Julia Caesar from her closest allies. A cast of actors from the local community have been rehearsing alongside professional performers, under the direction of Gary Andrews, to bring this classic play into the 21st century.
Funded and supported by Crawley Borough Council, Pitchy Breath Theatre Company was formed in 1995 and Julius Caesar will be their 51st production, their first Shakespeare play since 2011’s all-female version of The Taming of the Shrew.
