Royal Shakespeare Company to stage Robert Harris’s Cicero trilogy

The Royal  Shakespeare Company is creating a six-play adaptation of Robert Harris’s bestselling trilogy of novels about the Roman orator and politician Cicero, described by artistic director Gregory Doran as “Rome meets the West Wing”.   Doran, who will direct, said the six one-hour plays would be the grand finale of the company’s Rome season this summer, 2017.  [From The Guardian, Feb. 1, 2017]
