Enjoy an unforgettable open-air theatre experience on the Croquet Lawn as Shakespeare’s Globe brings Julius Caesar direct from the Globe Theatre to Doddington Hall as part of Globe on Tour.

This Summer, we confront our own political landscape as Shakespeare’s epic tragedy Julius Caesar takes on startlingly new relevance in the Globe Theatre, and on tour across the UK. 

Conspiracy to kill, public broadcast of cunning rhetoric, a divisive fight for Greatness. Ancient Rome has never felt closer to home. 

When Cassius and Brutus decide Rome’s leader Julius Caesar poses a political threat to their beloved country, there’s only one solution… 

Diane Page, winner of the 2021 JMK Award, brings Shakespeare’s brutal tale of ambition, incursion, and revolution to life in the Globe and on tour across the UK. 

‘Th’ abuse of greatness is when it disjoins Remorse from power.’

Act II, scene 1 

Tuesday 7 June, 7pm. Wednesday 8 June, 2.30pm matinée & 7pm.
