Details: Hart House Theatre continues to mark its 100th Anniversary Season and presents one of Shakespeare’s most memorable political dramas…with a big twist. Named one of the top shows of 2018 by The Toronto Star after its summer premiere, Portia’s Julius Caesar is an unapologetically feminist take on Shakespeare’s classic account of political upheaval. Through the eyes of a Roman wife, Portia’s Julius Caesar uses a mix of new words and the rich poetry from over 20 of Shakespeare’s works to explore the role of women in classic story-telling, ancient Roman society and politics.
