Detailing what is arguably the most infamous assassination in history, Julius Caesar is a tale of conspiracy, murder, betrayal, civic duty, and morality, and the power of words to shift the balance of power. The conspirators assassinate Caesar to prevent his dictatorial rise to power, but then must contend with swaying public opinion to their favor. In the subsequent power vacuum, who amongst them are fit to lead? Who are the real heroes and villains of the story? Julius Caesar is best known for its eloquent oratory, including the famous “Friends, romans, countrymen, lend me your ears” speech.

Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Athletic, strong, good looking in a Midwestern “Gee, shucks” kind of way. “Quick spirited.” Calls himself an Independent but votes with Caesar every time.

But that “Gee, shucks” is just a front: He likes power as much as any other man, even if he’ll never admit it.

Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Wife to Caesar – Servile and silent in public, disgusted with him in private, but unwilling to give up her life of glamour. She knows he’s shooting blanks, but he keeps blaming her for not giving him an heir. She dresses like Melania and her smile is just as fake. But when she begins to suspect he might actually die – she finds herself trying very hard to prevent it. Maybe there was a time she truly loved him after all? (Or maybe she’s just protecting her meal ticket.)

Role # 35 Portia
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Wife to Brutus: “Weak condition?” Is she pregnant? Ill? She seems to love her husband very much but also is smart enough to know he’s not being honest with her. Like Brutus, she is well-spoken and thoughtful. “Once commended beauty.” Is this just false modesty? Is she getting older? If pregnant, is this a “surprise” baby? Do they have other children? As with many of Shakespeare’s women, there’s lots of questions and not a ton of answers on the page. Lots of room to interpret.
