Imagine a time of political unrest, when a nation ravaged by disease and by the quarantine protocols enforced to contain it, teeters on the brink of collapse. Imagine the rise of a dictator who sees the discontent around him as an opportunity to extend his power, moving from politician to king. Julius Caesar, Shakespeare’s electrifying story of ambition, conspiracy, and its tragic aftermath, has been reconceived as a five-episode podcast, set in contemporary times. Directed by UNC Charlotte Distinguished Professor of Shakespeare, the podcast will release on November 14, with subsequent episodes dropping on November 16, 18, 20, and 22.
All episodes will remain available online through May 20, 2021.
Free, ticket required.
