William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar is a blistering political thriller, as relevant today as ever. With its exploration of absolute power and creeping dictatorship, now is the perfect time to revisit this play. Pitchy Breath Theatre Company are doing just that in this fast paced, modern dress, gender blind adaptation that brings this historical play firmly up to date, whilst still retaining the glorious language of our greatest writer.

We’re looking for imaginative and dynamic performers of all ages (18+) who are up for the challenge of collaborating to develop brilliant characters. Gary intends to edit the script to best suit the performers we wish to cast – so characters may end up being combined/cut/gender re-defined etc… this could even become ‘Julia Caesar’! If you wish to prepare a Shakespeare speech (from any play) then that is fine but not essential. The audition process will be relaxed and informal – as much about creating a good team as it is about the characters.

A note from Bradley Barlow, Artistic Director of Pitchy Breath:
Pitchy has a proud history of taking classic theatre, ripping up the rule book and turning things on their head – and this production promises to be no exception. Some of you may be nervous about performing Shakespeare and I would really would encourage you to try – I’d never performed Shakespeare until Gary directed me in The Tempest last summer. If anyone can get you to understand the language and meaning behind what you’re saying then it’s Gary – so please do come along and give it a go, who knows what you’ll discover…

I look forward to seeing many of you there – please share this audition notice widely.

Best wishes,
Bradley Barlow, Artistic Director
Pitchy Breath Theatre Company
