Mon, May 15, 6PM: John A. Logan Museum (Murphysboro, IL) Stone Soup Shakespeare tackles tragedy with a new production of Julius Caesar, Shakespeare’s famous work about power, loyalty, and the cost of idealism. The play chronicles the events leading to Caesar’s murder and the chaotic and bloody struggle for power in the wake of his death. Set amongst a sparse post-apocalyptic landscape, this dynamic and stripped down production features a cast of five bringing to life the conspirators, soldiers citizens, and ghosts of Ancient Rome.
