Following their acclaimed sell-out season in Stratford-upon-Avon, our Imperium plays, based on the bestselling Cicero Novels by Robert Harris, transfer to London’s Gielgud Theatre for a strictly limited season from 14 June.

Imperium is presented in two plays, which can be enjoyed as independent historical thrillers, or together as one unmissable theatrical event.

Directed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran and adapted by Mike Poulton (Wolf Hall, Bring Up the Bodies), the Imperium plays feature Olivier and Tony Award-winner Richard McCabe (The Audience) as Cicero and Joseph Kloska (The Crown, RSC’s Written on the Heart) as Tiro.

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.

 

I: CONSPIRATOR
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 Julius Caesar.

 

II: DICTATOR

Miss Littlewood

Born in the East End of London, Joan Littlewood battled against all odds to become one of the most successful directors in the West End and beyond, but her story has been almost forgotten. Told with her own uncompromising honesty, this new musical reveals a mighty love story at its heart.

Miss Littlewood plays in the Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon from 22 June for six weeks only
