Julius Caesar

Discounted rates for the production of Julius Caesar will be available for school groups when it runs at the new Bridge Theatre in London next January.

The new theatre, located on the Thames river by Tower Bridge and City Hall, will open on 26th October with a new comedy called Young Marx by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman, with Rory Kinnear in the title role.

This will be followed in January by Julius Caesar, staged in promenade by Nicholas Hytner, with Ben Whishaw as Brutus.

School groups going to see Julius Caesar are offered £15 standing tickets if there are more than ten people aged 18 or younger (plus one teacher at the same price per nine pupils).

The discounts apply to midweek matinee performances, and bookings can be made by calling 0843-208 1847.

More about the Bridge Theatre

The new theatre has been commissioned by the London Theatre Company, which was founded by Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr on leaving the National Theatre after 12 years.

Its aim is said to focus on the commissioning and production of new shows, as well as staging the occasional classic.
