The Saatchi Gallery will stage its first dramatic production next month.

Theatre company Proud Haddock's production of Julius Caesar will premiere at the modern art hub on 2 October ahead of its run at the nearby Chelsea Theatre in November.

The cast includes Ed Sheridan, Adam Blampied, William Findley, Alexander McMorran, Tracey Pickup, Rebecca Livermore, Mark Lawson, James Sindall and Vyvyan Almond.

It's directed by Jimmy Walters, who played Young Sirius Black in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

According to press material, "Drawing inspiration from popular television shows such as House of Cards, Homeland and The Thick of It, the work will allow the audience to witness behind the scenes politics and draw strong parallels between today’s political situation and the story of Julius Caesar."
