Event Website

Not quite a “sequel” but we do pick up the Roman world we began with Julius Caesar last year. It is many years later and the triumvirate of Octavius, Lepidus, and Antony are still in power though Antony has deserted Rome (and his wife) for the charms of the “temptress of the Nile”. Political maneuvering will eventually lead to combat but not before two of Shakespeare’s greatest characters have wrung every ounce of passion from each other and those that surround them. Wed.-Sat. at 7:30pm, Sun. at 2pm
