Fort Canning Park
Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT) is will be presenting the return of its much-loved Shakespeare in the Park series – with Julius Caesar. Audiences can look forward to spreading their blankets under the stars to picnic and enjoy the Bard’s best-loved plays in the uniquely beautiful setting of Fort Canning Park.
Directed by Guy Unsworth (Hand to God), and inspired by images of the G20 and
N.A.T.O summits, this production sees Shakespeare’s political thriller brought to life
against the backdrop of global current affairs. Ambition, power, and greed collide as
the leaders of the R.O.M.E 7 countries gather. Plots to assassinate the ever-ambitious Caesar are hatched. Are his conspirators truly doing a righteous deed? Or is chaos and defeat inevitable?
With larger than life characters jostling for power on the world stage, audiences will have no trouble drawing parallels with current politics.
Starring Jo Kukathas (Romeo & Juliet) as Julius Caesar alongside Ghafir Akbar
(Disgraced), Daniel Jenkins (Romeo & Juliet, Hand to God), Thomas Pang (Romeo &
Juliet, Hand to God,) and Julie Wee (The Merchant of Venice).
NOTE: Due to lack of financial support, SRT embarked on a crowdfunding campaign to garner more support for 2018 and they are almost there… If you’d like to support their production, head here.
