National Theatre Live’s ‘Julius Caesar’ Synopsis:
Caesar returns in triumph to Rome and the people pour out of their homes to celebrate. Alarmed by the autocrat’s popularity, the educated élite conspire to bring him down.
After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets of the capital. Nicholas Hytner’s production will thrust the audience into the street party that greets Caesar’s return, the congress that witnesses his murder, the rally that assembles for his funeral and the chaos that explodes in its wake.

David Morrissey’s recent Acting Craftsmanship:
David Morrissey has been busy portraying Aulus in TV series Britannia recently, and will soon play a featured role as Walter Blackett in upcoming series The Singapore Grip.
Best remembered as one of Rick Grimes’ greatest all-time rivals on The Walking Dead, David Morrissey’s acting has always been on a whole other level. Dynamite on-screen and on-stage, his presence commands your attention. Thus, it’s no surprise that an ‘actor’s actor’ like Morrissey would return to his roots after The Walking Dead and continue performing in Shakespeare’s lineage of work. Not to mention a strong run on-stage performing in Martin McDonagh’s Hangmen!
