Repercussion Theatre presents an all-female production of Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Julius Caesar. Bring a chair and enjoy the bard under the stars.
This political drama investigates the fine line between personal ambition and the general good, and — with a cast of only women — explores the relationship between gender and power. The production includes a high level of stage combat, live drumming, and, as always, a strong aesthetic style.
Presentations on Saturday, July 30 and Sunday, July 31 in Westmount Park. Entrance is by freewill donation. All shows are presented in English.
