By William Shakespeare
Directed by Rob Pensalfini
“How many ages hence
Shall this our lofty scene be acted over,
In states unborn and accents yet unknown!”
The fall of a tyrant leaves a vacuum. A tyrant rules by force of will, not by values. When a tyrant falls, it is possible to restore rule by values. But whose values? Brutus tells us that duty and honour are the highest values, while Cassius says it is friendship and love. Brutus weaponizes honour. Cassius weaponizes love.
Political allies tear one another apart, friendships falter, a great Republic implodes, and the door opens to tyranny once more in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.
