Julius Caesar

A Guest production from The Rude Mechanicals
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Joshua Engel
January 9-11, 2015
Presented in cooperation with the Greenbelt Arts Center

“There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel.” --Vladimir Lenin

“In a serious struggle, there is no worse cruelty than to be magnanimous at an inopportune time.” --Leon Trotsky

“Death is the solution to all problems. No man - no problem.” --Joseph Stalin

Welcome, Comrade, to the eve of the glorious revolution. They say that Caesar is ambitious, and sure, they are all honorable men. Men who gather in darkened corners and talk in whispers of righteous murder. Brutus, whose political survival instincts are continually subverted by his intellect and convoluted moral sense, is the Trotsky to Octavius' surer, more relentless Stalin. And Brutus' revolution will take the bloody and disastrous course of too many others, ending with a worse tyrant than the one Brutus set himself against.
