About this show

The world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company returns to BAM with a new twist on Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Set in present day Africa and featuring an all-black cast, this visionary production echoes the recent regime struggles on that continent. The first production from the RSC's newly appointed Artistic Director Gregory Doran, this staging features sets by Michael Vale and live performances of contemporary West African music, fostering the contemporary resonance of this classic political thriller. The Royal Shakespeare Company has made eight previous appearances at BAM, beginning with a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream in 1971 and most recently in 2007 with King Lear (featuring Ian McKellen) and The Seagull.
