Singapore Repertory Theatre Julius Caesar is all set to be the latest addition to SRT’s much-loved Shakespeare in the Park series. At arguably the biggest Shakespeare production of its kind in Asia, you and your loved ones can look forward to enjoying the Bard’s best-loved plays over a relaxing picnic in the uniquely beautiful setting of Fort Canning Park. Directed by Guy Unsworth (Hand to God), and inspired by images of the G20 and N.A.T.O summits, this brand new production sees Shakespeare’s political thriller brought to life against the backdrop of global current affairs.
Singapore Repertory Theatre Julius Caesar – The Story
Ambition, power, and greed collide as the leaders of the R.O.M.E 7 countries gather. Plans to murder the ever-ambitious Caesar are slowly being played out. Are his conspirators really doing a righteous deed? Or is chaos and defeat inevitable? The shocking relevance of the plays in today’s world despite being written more than 400 years ago is a testament to Shakespeare’s genius. With larger than life characters jostling for power on the world stage, audiences will have no trouble drawing parallels with current politics.
“Men at some time are masters of their fates: the fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves, that we are underlings……”
It is this enduring and timeless appeal, coupled with quality time spent with friends, colleagues and loved ones picnicking in Ford Canning that makes a night at Shakespeare in the Park truly memorable.
