CAESAR MAXIMUS, 2018
A BRAND NEW WORK AND WORLD PREMIERE
WE PLAYERS PRESENTS CAESAR MAXIMUS AT THE MusIC CONCOURSE IN FALL 2018.
San Francisco’s Music Concourse in Golden Gate Park provides the stage for We Players’ brand new adaptation of Julius Caesar, CAESAR MAXIMUS. Influenced by the Gilded Age, we explore a Roman Republic corrupted by machine politics and old money. Incorporating the nineteenth century popular entertainments of Opera and Circus, this multi-disciplinary, site-integrated production explores power, grief, and popular action. Inspired by the bloody history of civil unrest, the piece leans into the blind fury of a righteously angry mob and opens up Shakespeare’s greatest political parable for our own tumultuous time.
