Don’t miss Bristol Old Vic Theatre School’s inventive take on the Bard this spring, where deception and desire wreak playful havoc at Malcolm X Community Centre.

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Tanuja Amarasuriya
Designed by Holly Coulson and Ally Williams

In a realm where political power lies in errant hands, what cost comes with the struggle for change? Bristol Old Vic Theatre School tackles these timeless questions in Shakespeare’s chilling tragedy, Julius Caesar.

Through intimate staging that draws the audience into the heart of the action, this production examines whether violence can ever serve noble ends. As competing factions wrestle fiercely for the soul of Rome, director Tanuja Amarasuriya explores the brutal chaos that results when hasty leaders lose their sight on the greater good.

The culture at BOVTS is encouraging, respectful, welcoming and empowering; the environment and buildings are beautiful and I found Bristol to be one of the most wonderful cities in which to spend summer! Lindy Yeates, Foundation Course Student
