Julius Caesar

Directed by Tracy Skaggs
January 2015

“Cinematic in scope… a compelling, concise and comprehendible take on the Shakespeare tragedy.”
David Burke, Quad-City Times

“Prenzie’s ‘Caesar’ nails the brutal Bard’s tragedy…”
Wenonah Allen, Dispatch-Argus

“Cry ‘havoc’ and let slip the dogs of war.”

Shakespeare’s enduring political tragedy tangles with fraternity, duty, honor, and ambition, raising the question: who is the hero and who is the villain?
