Shakespeare’s historical tale
of politics and corruption in ancient Rome contains some of his most eloquent
writing. Mark Antony’s stirring and powerful Friends, Romans, Countrymen speech along with
Brutus’ struggle with his conscience and the thrilling final battle scenes have
enthralled audiences for centuries. Shakespeare’s keen examination of political
and personal downfalls, caused by pride, conspiracy and greed continues to
fascinate audiences to this day.
