The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) and Playful Productions are delighted to announce the West End transfer for acclaimed, historical two-part thriller IMPERIUM - I: Conspirator and II: Dictator, running for a limited engagement at London's Gielgud Theatre from 14 June to 8 September 2018.
Robert Harris' best-selling Cicero trilogy is adapted for the stage by Mike Poulton as six one-act plays, presented in two performances, each with two intervals. Directed by RSC Artistic Director, Gregory Doran, IMPERIUM transfers to London following its recent sold-out run at the Swan Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon.
Told through the watchful eyes of Cicero's loyal secretary, IMPERIUM - I: Conspirator chronicles how the great orator's early success unwittingly paves the way for a brutal and bloody end to the Republic.
With Rome in chaos at the beginning of [IMPERIUM - II: Dictator], Cicero must use all his brilliance to restore the power of the Senate from the civic mob and their would-be Emperor: one Gaius Julius Caesar.
