Part One of Mike Pulton’s two part Imperium adaptation is told through the eyes of Cicero’s loyal secretary Tiro, Imperium follows Cicero through highs and lows, wars, disasters and successes.
Mike Poulton, previously known for his incredible RSC adaptations of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies, has rewritten the histories of Ancient Rome with his adaptation of Robert Harris’ best-selling Cicero Trilogy. Directed by Gregory Doran, these acclaimed RSC productions of Imperium enjoyed a sold-out season in the Swan Theatre and are now preparing to transfer to the West End’s Gielgud Theatre. Imperium I: Conspirator will play for a strictly limited season from 14 June-8 September. Reprising their roles from the original run will be Richard McCabe as Cicero and Joseph Kloska as Tiro.
Cicero has bested his rival Catiline and been unanimously voted President of the Roman state. Furious Catiline vows revenge, an oath to destroy Cicero and the government and take Rome by force, if necessary. And how does young Caesar fit into it all? Popular, ruthless and hungry for power, Cicero is certain that Caesar is behind the conspiracy. It is said he who controls the mob controls Rome. With so many players in the game, it is nearly impossible to say who will come out on top.
The Imperium saga continues with Imperium II: Dictator.
