Caesar Must Die
A performance of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar has just ended amidst much applause in Rome's Rebibbia Prison. The lights dim on the actors and they become prisoners once again as they are accompanied back to their cells. The wonder and pride for the play do not always free the inmates from the exasperation of being incarcerated. Their angry confrontations put the show in danger. On the anticipated but feared day of opening night, the audience is numerous and diversified: inmates, actors, students, directors. Julius Caesar is brought back to life, but this time on a stage inside a prison.
