Imperium I: Conspirator
Following a successful run at the RSC, Mike Poulton’s Imperium transfers to the Gielgud Theatre in two thrilling parts. Featuring Richard McCabe as Cicero, Imperium I: Conspirator follows the philosopher as he plays his part in the downfall of the Republic of Rome. Told through Cicero’s loyal secretary, the first part sees how the orator paved a path to the brutal and bloody end of the Republic. Featuring a stellar cast, the production plays a strictly limited season.
Imperium II: Dictator
Artistic Director of the RSC Gregory Doran directs the gripping two-part Imperium at the Gielgud Theatre, following initial success at the Stratford venue. Transferring to the West End for a strictly limited season, Imperium II: Dictator sees Richard McCabe returns as Cicero, who tries to use his brilliance to influence the Senate and attempt to put a stop to the rise of the civic mob and their threatening new leader, Julius Caesar. Adapted from Mike Poulton’s best-selling novel, this two-parter promises to be completely thrilling.
