Critic Reviews (5)

Time Out London
May 13th, 2022

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 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.

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.

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.
