The riveting and bloody story of Julius Caesar heats up the Bernstein stage in this pared down ‘bare Bard’ production, in which 7 actors play all the roles. This psychological drama follows the conspiracy against and assassination of the Roman Dictator by his closest friends and peers and the brutal aftermath of his murder.

by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
directed by JONATHAN EPSTEIN
featuring MALCOLM INGRAM as Falstaff

Power and rebellion collide in a whirlwind adaptation of Henry IV — delivering both parts in one dynamic evening of theatre. A 15th century Eastcheap and a contemporary London set the backdrop for the exploits of a defiant Price Hal and his partner-in-crime, the unruly knight Falstaff, a guilt-ridden King Henry, and the plotting Harry Percy — “The Hotspur.” Shakespeare’s History Cycle continues to captivate and mesmerize after 450 years.
