JMK award-winning director Diane Page said today: "I'm so excited to bring my production of Julius Caesar straight from the Globe Theatre in London to tour across the UK.

The piece is designed by Khadija Raza with Jesse Haughton-Shaw as dramaturg and Indiana Lown Collins as assistant director. Choreography is by Asha Jennings-Grant, composition is by Simon Slater, costume supervision is by Sian Harris, fight direction is by RC Annie with movement work by Glynn MacDonald, text work by Christine Schmidle and voice work by Emma Woodvine. It has been cast by Becky Paris, head of casting at Shakespeare's Globe.
