The Ides of March

Theatre and Physical Theatre • Comedy

Time travel. Treachery. Togas!

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 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 rollercoaster ride through space and time. Ancient history like you've never seen before!

Reviews & Fringefeed Reacts

  • Hopefully they will be back next year and should they be, you can be certain tickets will not be so easy to come by. - Liam McNally, Tulpa Magazine

  • For those who love Shakespeare, ancient history, or laugh-a-minute theatre, ‘The Ides of March’ is a delightfully absurd revisionist comedy - Guy Henderson, Everything Adelaide

  • It’s a bald-faced bard’s farce, full of slapstick and knowing nods to his other works, and a great way to start your Fringe. - Mark Wickett, Stage Whispers
