Caesar (1999)

Just realised that 20 years ago TheatreFusion were getting ready to mount a production of my modern day adaptation of Julius Caesar (set in a contemporary U.S. Presidential campaign) at Cottiers, Glasgow. I also directed the production.

20 years!

Despite some technical issues with the multimedia (clunking video players!) the adaptation was well-received, and was subsequently performed at a college in the USA, at a college in Glasgow, at my secondary school and at Bathgate Regal.

Maybe one day, if the political situation deteriorates, the themes of the abuse of power, dishonesty and betrayal of the original play and the dissection of media spin and manipulation in the adaptation, will inspire someone to mount a new production…

(Let me know if you would be interested in performing it!)

Cast will recall this song well!

And this one!
