POLITICAL SHAKESPEARE

Deborah Warner’s Julius Caesar (Barbican) and Nicholas Hytner’s Henry IV (National). David Benedict, Jane Edwardes and Heather Neill discuss them together. Dominic Cavendish hosts.

In both plays there’s illegal regime change and both have to cope with the consequences of that.
