Shakespeare's political thriller tells the story of the conspiracy against Caesar, his assassination and the defeat of his conspirators.  Jealous conspirators convince Caesar's friend Brutus to join their assassination plot against Caesar. To stop Caesar from gaining too much power, Brutus and the conspirators kill him on the Ides of March. Mark Antony drives the conspirators out of Rome and fights them in a battle. Brutus and his friend Cassius lose and kill themselves, leaving Antony to rule in Rome. 

“Shakespeare's well-known play depicting the events stands as a testament to its lasting impact, and has also taken on a life of its own in our modern zeitgeist. We read the play in classes, perform it on our stages, and quote it in our daily lives, sometimes without even realizing it.” - Broadway World
