Day 207 - Julius Caesar (with our Lady Bracknell)
Karen Dunbar, who was playing Lady Bracknell when our theatre closed in March, is amongst the stars of this extraordinary production of Julius Ceaser by Phyllida Lloyd The production was an extraordinary hit at the Donmar Warehouse when it opened in 2012, and gave rise to two further productions - Henry IV and The Tempest.
The trilogy was created with Clean Break, a theatre company who work with women who have been in – or are at risk of entering – prison. All three plays were set in prisons with the all-female casts transforming Shakespeare’s classics into explorations of vulnerability, gang-violence, addiction and power.
It's a powerful, inventive, fascinating watch.
