The Event

Rome teeters on the brink of becoming a monarchy, Caesar reaches ambitiously for more power. In this adaptation of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Canadian Playwright Kaitlyn Riordan refocuses the classic political thriller on the women. Portia, Brutus’ wife, tries to keep the peace, all while protecting her best friend Calpurnia, her new son and the democracy in which she believes. This play deals with themes of fertility, loyalty and the price we pay for our beliefs. Little Lion is a Canadian theatre company based in England dedicated to sharing stories and theatrical work from their home country with audiences in the UK.
