Cry havoc, and let slip the dogs of war!
– Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare
In August 2013, The Two Gentlemen of Vancouver presented a prehistoric and bloody production of Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare. The production explored the depths of passion and thirst for blood in an uncivilized society where nothing is left sacred or untouched. The show was a deathly riot with CJ McGillivray portraying the fiercely devoted and emotionally damaged Portia opposite her longtime collaborator Aaron Paul Stewart as Brutus.
