Because so many Shakespeare lovers and students are homebound, we are sharing this complete audio performance of Julius Caesar, available for free streaming until July 1, 2020. This production was performed by the professional actors of Folger Theatre, in consultation with the editors of The Folger Shakespeare.
The Folger Shakespeare Library and our publishing partner, Simon & Schuster Audio, hope you enjoy this performance and share it with your friends. If you would like your own audiobook version of Julius Caesar, you can purchase a personal copy from Audible, iTunes, Google Play, and other retailers.
