SHAKESPEARE’S FIRST ACTS: JULIUS CAESAR
Daniel Winder, Director of Iris Theatre, tells Sophie Reynolds about the first act of Shakespeare’s political tragedy, with reference to Iris Theatre’s current promenade production of the play at St Paul’s Church, Covent Garden. This interview is part of theatreVOICE’s series for 2012-2014, looking at the beginning of each of Shakespeare’s plays. Recorded at St Paul’s Church, 5 July 2013.
I always think that levity is incredibly useful as a key to unlocking the hearts of an audience so that they’re ready to receive tragedy.
