Phyllida Lloyd and All-Female Shakespeare

In 2012, the Donmar Warehouse presented an all-female production of "Julius Caesar," directed by Tony Award nominated director Phyllida Lloyd and starring Harriet Walter. The production was set in a womens' prison, and was the first of a trilogy of all-female productions that the Guardian would call “one of the most important theatrical events of the past 20 years.”

Director Phyllida Lloyd tells us about the productions, from conception to production. She is interviewed by Barbara Bogaev.
