I CINNA (THE POET) - A SPECIALLY COMMISSIONED PRODUCTION - THURSDAY 27 SEPTEMBER 2012, 2pm

Playing alongside Julius Caesar is this specially commissioned production for students aged 11 + (also suitable for general bookings).  I Cinna (The Poet) written and directed by Tim Crouch, tells the story of Julius Caesar through the eyes of Cinna, one of the minor characters in the play.

Cinna, a lowly poet is having bad dreams, he is a man who finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time... with the wrong name...while history thunders past.

He asks the young audience to consider the relationship between words and actions, art and politics, self and society. During the performance Cinna asks students to write poems with him: small poems on big themes. These poems can be reworked after the performance and sent to the RSC, where a web archive of responses to the play will be created.

I, Cinna is the latest in a series of solo shows written and directed by Tim Crouch inspired by Shakespeare's lesser characters, including I, Peaseblossom and I, Malvolio (RSC, 2011) and has been commissioned as part of the World Shakespeare Festival.

The show has its own design but will play on top of the Julius Caesar set.

 The show is 50 minutes long followed directly by a post show event on stage led by the actor and an RSC education practitioner. The post show event lasts for up to 40mins.

There is a free comprehensive online education pack, unpicking the issues and key choices in I Cinna and Julius Caesar, with structured activities to run in preparation for the production as well as afterwards back in the classroom.

£5 for under 26s and £10 for over 26s. 

One free teacher / supervisor with every ten children aged 16 or under.

Limited tickets available.
