Downers Grove South High School will present its fall play, Juli(us) Caesar, on Friday and Saturday, November 2 and 3 at 7 p.m.
Tickets cost $10; $5 for senior citizens; District 99 students FREE with student ID.
In this all-female reimagining of Shakespeare’s political drama, an all-out war is waged at Rome Academy School for Girls when a group of friends decide to take down the popular Juli Caesar before she becomes even more powerful, leaving a path of destruction in their wake. Set to the music of Radiohead, this retelling focuses on the power struggle between adolescent girls for honor and acceptance and what happens when friendships are betrayed.
