Elwood Social Club Productions is a comedy theatre company created by Kieran Bullock for the purpose for creating high quality, high energy theatre productions. Their first show was a production of the West End smash The 39 Steps, which was performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2016. The Ides of March is an original play written by Kieran Bullock, and marks the first original work performed by the company. It will be toured extensively during 2019 and 2020, culminating in a run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The Ides of March
When William Shakespeare travels back in time to ancient Rome to research his newest play he unwittingly finds himself a prime suspect in the murder of Julius Caesar. He and his faithful sidekick Cardenio are forced to use all their tact and cunning to evade the villainous senator Brutus, the leader of the conspirators who's desperate to throw the 'dirty foreigner' to the lions, and the trenchcoat-clad Inspector Detectivus of the Roman Politizia, who's hell-bent on cracking the case of the century.
Grab your swords and sandals and strap in for a fast, furious roller-coaster ride through space and time. This is ancient history like you've never seen before!
"One of the most drawn-out and hysterical takes on Caesar's death I can imagine" Shakespeare Oz
“Those who like their theatre fast, frenetic and funny will love this. ”
