“Cry ‘Havoc!’ and let slip the dogs of war” on Monday, April 27 with ELIZABETH MARVEL, who will join Red Bull’s Associate Producer NATHAN WINKELSTEIN for a conversation focused on Mark Antony’s other iconic speech from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.
Elizabeth Marvel took on the role in Oskar Eustis’s controversial 2017 production for Shakespeare in the Park. She’ll read the passage and discuss her approach to the text. They’ll take questions from lucky registrants, too.

O, pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth,
That I am meek and gentle with these butchers!
Thou art the ruins of the noblest man
That ever livèd in the tide of times.
Woe to the hand that shed this costly blood!
Over thy wounds now do I prophesy
Which, like dumb mouths, do ope their ruby lips
To beg the voice and utterance of my tongue
A curse shall light upon the limbs of men.
Domestic fury and fierce civil strife
Shall cumber all the parts of Italy.
Blood and destruction shall be so in use,
And dreadful objects so familiar,
That mothers shall but smile when they behold
Their infants quartered with the hands of war,
All pity choked with custom of fell deeds,
And Caesar’s spirit, ranging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch’s voice
Cry “Havoc!” and let slip the dogs of war,
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.
