When Caesar crossed the Rubicon, history took a dramatic and irreversible turn. Here is Caesar ready to return to Rome and receive the honors of state. But there are jealousies in Rome, and enemies who persuade the Senate to be tough with Caesar, and to order him home without the pomp and power of his legions. Meanwhile his enemies rally their forces to gain an ascendancy in power over Caesar. But he has anticipated this: he is forced to assert himself by force and enters Rome in strength.
Caesar at the Rubicon was first presented at the Princeton Repertory Theater in Princeton, New Jersey in February, 1971.
