The Soothsayer In Souliloquy
By Tilly Lunken
Directed by Victorine Pontillon
Performed by Chris Rogers
After William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar


The Soothsayer is a warning in the play to Caesar but his reason is drowned out by others and so fate is sealed. He has little voice and is dismissed but shows great insight.

Our Soothsayer speaks of prophecy, of consequence and a little of himself and where he stands in the ruins of what path Rome takes. His voice is positioned in history and time and yet reaches beyond all that.

Chris' performance is a really intense and closely observed one. This man knows too much and cannot stop speaking this knowledge, even if he wanted to. This one also really benefits being just listened to with your eyes closed, his voice has such depth and feeling. 

Listen. Caesar didn't and look where that got him. 



The Soothsayer In Souliloquy is part of Cycle 2 of the In Souliloquy project.
