Imperium II: Dictator

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.

  • A gripping play

    11 July 2018

    Terrific acting from a wonderful cast, great set and production. A gripping portrayal of the end of the Roman republic. It got better and better.

  • utter brilliance

    5 July 2018

    Half-way through reading the novels, I felt we had to see this play. The acting and interpretation were visceral - true to the books, but injected with an energy and visual language that was extraordinary. All the actors were brilliant - engaging and repulsive, depending on context. The murder of Caesar was brilliantly staged, as were the consequences. A magnificent take on the death of a republic. We should learn from it.
