I, Cinna (The Poet)

Front Cover
Oberon Books, Jun 11, 2012 - Drama - 64 pages

The story of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar told through the eyes of a jiggling fool, a lowly poet having bad dreams, a man who finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time... with the wrong name... while history thunders past. Forming part of Tim Crouch’s series of solo shows inspired by Shakespeare’s lesser characters, I, Cinna is written for ages 11+ and engages a young audience to think and write, to consider the relationship between words and actions, art and politics, self and society.
