Delfont Mackintosh Theatres


Following their acclaimed sell-out season in Stratford-upon-Avon, the Royal Shakespeare Company's IMPERIUM plays, based on the bestselling Cicero Novels by Robert Harris, has transferred to London's Gielgud Theatre for a strictly limited season.

IMPERIUM is presented in two plays, which can be enjoyed as independent historical thrillers, or together as one unmissable theatrical event.

Told through the watchful eyes of Cicero's loyal secretary, IMPERIUM I: CONSPIRATOR chronicles how the great orator's early success unwittingly paves the way for a brutal and bloody end to the Republic.

With Rome in chaos at the beginning of IMPERIUM II: DICTATOR, Cicero must use all his brilliance to restore the power of the Senate from the civic mob and their would-be Emperor: one Julius Caesar.

Directed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran and adapted by Mike Poulton (Wolf Hall, Bring Up the Bodies), the IMPERIUM plays feature Olivier and Tony Award-winner Richard McCabe (The Audience) as Cicero and Joseph Kloska (The Crown, RSC's Written on the Heart) as Tiro.

Enjoy a two course pre-theatre dinner at Refuel Bar & Restaurant at The Soho Hotel with a glass of wine and tickets to the either IMPERIUM I: CONSPIRATOR or II: DICTATOR for £69.50* per person.

Located just a five minute walk from the Gielgud Theatre, Refuel Bar & Restaurant at The Soho Hotel serves the finest quality modern international cuisine, with an emphasis upon fresh, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. Perfect for pre-theatre dining, guests can enjoy a glass of wine with delicious dishes, such as crispy Halloumi with white bean and roast garlic skorthalia and grilled artichokes, pan fried cod with onion and sage puree, sea kale and a smoked haddock croquette, as well as a selection of mouth-watering desserts including, vanilla panna cotta with Alphonso mango and English strawberries.
