Remember last year when theatres in America were receiving hate mail for producing shows written by Shakespeare? It was from the backlash of audience reactions to New York Public Theatre’s production of Julius Caesar. Their depiction of Caesar, based on the Roman emperor who was murdered in 44 BCE, looked very similar to the current US president. Those who had voted for Trump, including those who hadn’t seen the show, felt compelled to protest and demand the production be shut down in fear it would encourage the idea of making the play a reality – the assassination of the president and a civil war to brew.
