Julius Caesar (Tour - Newcastle)
Admittedly at times I did find it hard to capture every line due to the accents, but every cast member fully pulls their weight. As we have virtually every top black actor in the Country on stage in this production the talent on stage is extraordinary.
The on stage band, which welcomes you in to the auditorium, certainly captures your imagination and transports you to Africa even before a word is spoken.
While the thought of Julius Caesar set in Africa does seem bizarre, it proves the RSC are still adventurous and know how to capture a new audience for Shakespeare.
