Caesar Must Die Caesar Must Die



In a high-security prison in Rome, inmates prepare for the staging of Julius Caesar. Shakespeare’s universal language helps the inmate-actors to identify with their characters, but the path is long and full of anxiety, hope and play. The wonder and pride for the play do not always free the inmates from the exasperation of being incarcerated, and angry confrontations put the show in danger. On the anticipated but feared day of opening night, the play is brought to life in front of a diverse audience of inmates, actors, students and directors.
