Rome lies in Chaos. Inequality is rife, the people are starving, the politicians are corrupt, and the threat of foreign invasion grows closer every day. In desperation the people choose the proud and haugty soldier Caius Marcius to lead them, but when Marcius is betrayed and cast out by his political rivals, he turns his back on the state he once risked his life to protect, and enters the arms of an enemy to seek his revenge.
Shakespeare’s forgotten masterpiece is a political tragedy for the ages brought to life in a stunning modern style on the Bedlam Stage.
