Reviews

  • Evening Standard

    "It's not just the casting that makes it feel daring; there's also a crazed, percussive intensity, and the production abounds with weirdness, thuggery and horror. This is visceral and exciting theatre."
  • The Independent

    "[Lloyd's production] allows for potent doubleness is, say, Harriet Walter's wonderfully searching performance. You feel that she is both a haunted, hollow-cheeked, proto-Hamlet-like Brutus, racked by the contradictions of his political position and an anguished, thoughtful inmate who, after a taste of imaginative freedom, understands the full philosophical bitterness of the return to incarceration."
  • The Guardian

    "[Phyllida Lloyd's] 'Julius Caesar' is one of the most important theatrical events of the year... It hits the stage with real urgency."
