Saturday 8/26, 7pm - 8/27, 9pm, Danehy Park, Cambridge
As a triumphant Caesar returns to Rome from a bloody campaign abroad, the people pour into the streets to celebrate. Within the current of this angry flood of jubilant, nationalist pride, an educated élite, fearing the rise of tyranny and the reach of a popular autocrat’s power-- or, perhaps, hungry with their own ambition-- conspire to cut him down. William Shakespeare’s eternal tragedy stages history’s most enduring political assassination as an exploration of the line between patriotism and personal ambition, the resistance to living as an underling, and the human costs of the choices leaders make to “let slip the dogs of war.” Free Admission. Sponsored by the Cambridge Arts Council. For more information and weather cancellations, please visit www.facebook.com/praxis.stage. Wednesdays - Saturdays @ 7pm, Saturdays & Sundays @ 3pm August 9th - 12th @ Danehy Park August 16th - 20th @ Longfellow Park August 23rd - 27th @ Danehy Park
