Project Abstract/ Summary
Aquila Theatre Company will present Shakespeare's classic tragedy Julius Caesar, which traces the conspiracy against Caesar, his assassination and the aftermath. The play reflects the general anxiety Shakespeare and his contemporaries had over who would succeed Elizabeth I. The elderly Elizabeth refused to name a successor, leading to fears that a civil war would break out upon her death.
