JULIUS CAESAR – Shakespeare’s Globe on Screen

NR  |  2 hours 40 minutes

Opposing dictatorship and republicanism, private virtue and mob violence: Shakespeare’s tense drama of high politics resonates even today. When Caesar returns to Rome from the wars, Brutus and his republican friends decide that the great general’s dictatorship must be curbed – which in Rome can mean only one thing. But once the deed is done, the idealistic conspirators must reckon with the forces of a new power bloc, led by Mark Antony and Caesar’s nephew Octavius. This sell-out production of JULIUS CAESAR employs authentic Renaissance costumes and staging, complemented by director Dominic Dromgoole’s impassioned interpretation of one of Shakespeare’s classic plays.

LOVE’S LABOUR’S WON – Royal Shakespeare Company

NR  |  2 hours 50 minutes

Shakespeare’s comic romance LOVE’S LABOUR’S WON plays out amidst the brittle high spirits of a post-war house party, as youthful passions run riot, lovers are deceived, and happiness is threatened – before peace ultimately wins the day. Better known as Much Ado About Nothing, the play is performed under the title Love’s Labour’s Won, a name possibly given to it during Shakespeare’s lifetime. Christopher Luscombe directs the second of Shakespeare’s matching pair of comedies that rejoice in our capacity to find love in the most unlikely places.

TITUS ANDRONICUS – Shakespeare’s Globe on Screen

NR  |  2 hours 30 minutes

Grotesquely violent and daringly experimental, Titus was the smash hit of Shakespeare’s early career, and is written with a ghoulish energy he was never to repeat elsewhere. This production caused a stir in the UK media with staged violence so realistic that throughout its run the play had audiences on the edges of their seats from start to grisly end.

ADULT BEGINNERS
