Julius Caesar

There are never enough female roles in Shakespeare's plays, so this November we're turning an all-female cast loose on one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies!

Although ISC has often cast women in male roles, and last year presented an all-female cast in Desdemona, Paula Vogel's modern feminist take on Othello, this will be the company's first Shakespeare play featuring an all-female cast. The cast includes several actors who are new to the company as well as those familiar to audiences from previous ISC shows.

"When women inhabit these male characters, it helps bring the violent and honor-obsessed world of the play into sharper focus," says director Amina Omari. "Of course, in a world where so many female roles are underwritten, it's also thrilling to watch a talented cast of women scheme, swashbuckle, and fully embrace the spotlight."

Don't miss this provocative and challenging gender-bending take on Shakespeare's great historical tragedy! Honor, betrayal, conspiracy, murder, swordfights, riots, ghosts, and one of the most brilliantly persuasive speeches ever written...

  • When: November 6-9 and 13-16, 2014
  • Evening performances at 7:30 pm, Sunday matinees at 4 pm
  • Where: Fall Creek Studios, 1201 N. Tioga St.
  • Thursdays are discount nights — all tickets just $12!
  • Regular tickets on other nights are $20, with student and senior discounts available.
