Caesar (2014) →

A little bit late for the Ides of March, but it looks as though there is a film adaptation of Julius Caesar in the works. The cast looks great. A bit of extra trivia, Indira Varma (Calpurnia) is also playing Tamora in the Globe’s 2014 production of Titus Andronicus.

Globe 2014 announcement

Drawing together two momentous anniversaries: the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth and the centenary of the First World War, our next Globe season, entitled Arms and the Man, will include new productions of Shakespeare’s Antony & Cleopatra, Julius Caesar directed by Dominic Dromgoole, The Comedy of Errors directed by Blanche McIntyre, and a revisiting of Lucy Bailey’s 2006 production of Titus Andronicus.

The season will also bring four new write plays: Doctor Scroggy’s War by Howard Brenton, Holy Warriors by David Eldridge, Simon Armitage’s The Last Days of Troy and Richard Bean’s Pitcairn.

Next year’s touring productions will see the start of the global tour of Hamlet, a revival of this year’s King Lear, a mid-scale reworking of Dominic Dromgoole’s 2013 A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Much Ado About Nothing.

As part of our international Globe to Globe programme, Deafinitely Theatre will return to stage A Midsummer Night’s Dream in British Sign Language and Theatre Arpana will present All’s Well That Ends Well in Gujarati. Rakatá will stage Lope de Vega’s classic Punishment Without Revenge in Spanish.

Find out about the season in full on our website.

I saw the 2006 Titus Andronicus - it was fantastic!

Hamlet is Everyman, a universal, cross-cultural figure. Women identify with him too, but we cannot play him because he is a man. Imagine you are trained and capable of playing Beethoven’s piano concertos but you are forbidden to perform them because you are a woman. - Harriet Walter

Excellent stuff - sharing this for others who might find this useful.


This is absolutely phenomenal, how did I not know that this existed.

A wonderful, behind-the-scenes guide at some of Donmar’s latest work. Info packets for each of their most recent plays.

Julius Caesar (all Female)
Richard II (Eddie Redmayne
King Lear (Derek Jacobi)
Twelfth Night (Derek Jacobi, Samantha Spiro)
Hamlet (Jude Law)

Other, older plays are available on request. I wonder if they happen to have any footage…..
