The production of this play is part of a greater collaboration between the RSC and The Ohio State University to bring more RSC performances to the United States. CAPA provides the following description:

Set in contemporary Africa with a cast of highly acclaimed, black British actors, this groundbreaking production of Shakespeare’s great political thriller tells the story of the conspiracy against Caesar, his assassination, and the defeat of his conspirators. The production, directed by the RSC’s new artistic director Gregory Doran, depicts the struggle for democracy as well as the story of two men united by an explosive act of political violence.
