Caesar is known by many to be generous, powerful, a brilliant tactician, and a wise leader.

He is also known to be ambitious.

Fresh from his victory over his political rival and fellow Consul, Pompey the Great, Caesar returns to Rome with dreams of seizing the absolute power that he believes he deserves.

Many Romans rejoice to see this happen, but there are some who do not. Some Romans look to an old custom; when one man seeks to make himself a king, it is every citizen's responsibility to see him dead.

Would this be an act of great treachery or great civil responsibility?

This is the story of the end of a centuries-old democracy and the birth of one of the most powerful Empires in human history.

Julius Caesar is one of Shakespeare's more unique plays; a story without a clear hero or villain, where the tension comes from the political backdrop of the Roman Republic's final days. A political thriller that tells the story of the conspiracy against Caesar, his assassination and the defeat of his conspirators.
