“Julius Caesar Twisted” is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s play set in a contemporary prison. While the people who are incarcerated watch a TV show about Julius Caesar that features scenes from Shakespeare’s play, a subplot brewing inside the prison mirrors the story of the Roman leader. Created by Lesley Currier and men from Solano State Prison in 2022, this production highlights the history of Julius Caesar, while depicting a parallel story with contemporary relevance.

Free to Schools.
April 17 – 19 at 10 am and 1 pm.

514 Fourth Street, San Rafael.

Performance Runtime: approximately 1 hour with a 20-minute post-show Workshop and Q& A with the actors.

CONTENT ADVISORY: While we do our best to modify the language and fight scenes so younger and more sensitive viewers can enjoy the performance, the core of Shakespeare’s play remains intact. “Julius Caesar” is a political tragedy with violent, on-stage murder. This production depicts life inside a prison, with portrayals of trauma and mental illness. Post-show activities will educate students about mass incarceration. Suggested for audiences in 5th Grade and up.

Marin Shakespeare is pleased to offer transportation funding to school groups of 20+ for whom the cost of transportation may be prohibitive.
