The Wichita Shakespeare Company is finishing off its season with a Shakespeare in the Park presentation of “Julius Caesar” — with a twist.

The Wichita Shakespeare Company is finishing off its season with a Shakespeare in the Park presentation of “Julius Caesar” — with a twist.

“The cast is made up of 14 women,” Mark Anderson, director, said. “We’ve flipped everything in the show so that the play can be an all-women cast. It’s an experiment.”

“Julius Caesar” is a tragedy that follows the downfall of Rome’s most popular leader.

“There is death and sword fights, something women actors rarely get to do,” Anderson said. “The show will be an interesting play on all different types of female relationships.”
