Edgy, Great acting, Entertaining, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if you love Shakespeare and want to see it performed in the Globe theater.

Don't see it if You don't like violence and have a hard time following Shakespeare. Small cast play multiple roles which was a bit confusing at times.

Entertaining

See it if You like those jobs where the direction did not focus on the protagonists, in favor of a more horizontal group work.

Don't see it if You expect to find underlined the greatness of classical rhetoric. Read more

Time Out London

Page makes the most of what she has, and directs a really barrelling first half that entertains from the off. It’s an entertaining ‘Caesar’ that turns a relative lack of resources to its advantage, especially in the clean, uncluttered storytelling of the first half.

Yet Julius Caesar is most effective when played straight through as a political thriller – I’ve yet to see a production in which an interval doesn’t leech the messy second half of forwards momentum, and Page’s production loses its grip on its own thesis after the break.

The results are more comic than epic. Deaths are almost laughable in their lethargy. There are a few good performances ... [but] this production is something of a wasted opportunity... [it] is a limp interpretation that lacks any true sense of identity or purpose.

The cast of eight unravel this world of ancient Rome with gusto, but it hardly feels ... as if the person in charge could make or break the country. To the audience, it just feels like a bit of a laugh.

A bold experiment with female Brutus and Cassius, Diane Page’s direction shines as the the versatile duo compellingly convey the raw struggle for power and prestige so intrinsic to their characters. The actors go a long way to compensate for an absolutely bare-bones set design.

Charlotte Bate marshals the action nicely, playing chief plotter Cassius – while Jack Myers gets deserved laughs as aloof senator Casca. Page's production shows [the] audience some fun.
