Directed and edited by Allison Fuentes, the play is an abridged version of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” that refocuses the classic tale from Brutus’s viewpoint.

Set in a modern-day politically polarized society, it reveals the path to Brutus’s ultimate “call to fate” and contemplates how thin the line can be between hero and villain. This production is an M.F.A. directing thesis.
