The Ides of March... on the stage!

Today is the 15th of March, the Ides of March, also known as the day Julius Caesar was murdered. It is an anniversary I commemorate every year on this blog. The date and the name is also famous because of the famous line "Beware the Ides of March" from Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare. Which I have neither read nor watched in its entirety yet. I could have the chance to see it no later than this month, as the National Theatre has the play in production and will broadcast it live on the 22nd of March. It is a fitting time of year to show the play. And a fitting time in British life as well, due to current events, which I don't intend to dwell on for now. It seems that we must indeed beware the Ides of March.
