Imperium – Gielgud Theatre – booking until 8 September 2018
Following their acclaimed sell-out season in Stratford-upon-Avon, the Royal Shakespeare Company’s IMPERIUM plays transfer to London’s Gielgud Theatre. This is for a strictly limited season from 14th June. The plays are based on the bestselling Cicero Novels by Robert Harris.
IMPERIUM is presented in two plays. They can be enjoyed as independent historical thrillers, or together as one unmissable theatrical event.
The plays told through the watchful eyes of Cicero’s loyal secretary. RSC’s IMPERIUM I: CONSPIRATOR chronicles how the great orator’s early success unwittingly paves the way for a brutal and bloody end to the Republic.
With Rome in chaos at the beginning of IMPERIUM II: DICTATOR, Cicero must use all his brilliance to restore the power of the Senate. He must stop the civic mob and their would-be Emperor: one Julius Caesar.
Directed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran. Adapted by Mike Poulton (Wolf Hall, Bring Up the Bodies). The IMPERIUM plays feature Olivier and Tony Award-winner Richard McCabe (The Audience) as Cicero. Joseph Kloska (The Crown, RSC’s Written on the Heart) as Tiro.
