Julius Caesar
by William Shakespeare
A guest production from The Rude Mechanicals
Welcome, Comrade, to the eve of the glorious revolution. They say that Caesar is ambitious, and sure, they are all honorable men. Men who gather in darkened corners and talk in whispers of righteous murder. Brutus, whose political survival instincts are continually subverted by his intellect and convoluted moral sense, is the Trotsky to Octavius' surer, more relentless Stalin. And Brutus' revolution will take the bloody and disastrous course of too many others, ending with a worse tyrant than the one Brutus set himself against.

Spider's Web
A guest production from Thunderous Productions
Clarissa, the second wife of Henry Hailsham Brown, is adept at spinning tales of adventure for their bored diplomatic circle.

Worse still, the victim is the man who broke up Henry's first marriage! Clarissa's fast talking places her in some hair raising experiences, as she comes to learn that the facts are much more terrifying than fiction.
