Alexandre Dumas's Catilina
The perpetuation of the ancient Republic of Rome is in jeopardy. Although of an unsavory reputation, Catilina emerges as the champion of the Roman people against a government dominated by a corrupt and wealthy aristocracy. He runs for the office of consul, challenging the great orator, Cicero. Critical to both men's success is the support of a young Julius Caesar, who is uncertain as to which side he will join.
The first English adaptation of the classic play by Alexandre Dumas, author of "The Three Musketeers" and "The Count of Monte Cristo," is bound to thrill readers of the twenty-first century, just as it did those of the nineteenth.
