Caesar, Cincinnatus and Gloriana: Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar
Saturday, March 14 at 10:30am
Wallace House & Old Dutch Parsonage
Classical Greece and Rome were part of the popular culture of Revolutionary America just as they were in Elizabethan England when Shakespeare wrote Julius Caesar. We’ll consider the resonance of this play in the Elizabethan era as Shakespeare’s contemporaries considered the loss of a long-reigning monarch and again in the Revolutionary War as General Washington eschewed a potential military dictatorship in favor of civilian rule by Congress. This program begins a series of play discussions in conjunction with author Ian Doescher’s Shakespeare 2020 Project. Free admission. Register at (908) 725-1015 or [email protected].
