William Shakespeare’s: Julius Caesar
Political maneuvering, angry aristocrats, backstabbing treachery – all too familiar a scenario in this world, especially if your name is Julius Caesar. Hole in the Wall Theater is proud to present “Julius Caesar” based on the classic play written by William Shakespeare and adapted by Hole in the Wall member William Arnold. Presented in a modern day office setting, universal themes prove as true today as they did in ancient Rome – corporate tragedy with all its underhanded and evil machinations.
Julius Caesar returns from a successful war against his enemies, but finds himself surrounded by other enemies ready to kill him and take over the Roman Empire. Friend turns against friend, the instigators are forced to flee, and a long, drawn out war takes place before peace is restored and the republic is saved.
Performances are Friday and Saturday nights, May 26 through June 17 at 8:00 p.m., with a Sunday matinee June 4 at 2:00 p.m.
Friday, June 2 is “Pay What You Can” night at Hole in the Wall.
Hole in the Wall is located at 116 Main Street, New Britain, CT. General admission is $20, and $15 for students with ID and seniors. Reservations can be made at 860.229.3049 and tickets can be purchased at Tix
