Skitskrieg by TLC Creative

Run TimeAround 60 minutes. [Estimated!] Period songs could be added to extend the run time.
MusicThe script contains the lyrics to one song (to the tune of 12 days of Christmas) and suggestions for other songs which might be appropriate for the show. (Note that additional songs will add to the run-time.) Lazy Bee Scripts does not supply any sheet music with this script.

SynopsisFresh from military conquests, Caesar returns to Rome in triumph. His friend, Mark Antony, offers him a crown. The Roman senate takes offence at this - the senators want to maintain the republic, rather than have Rome submit to a single ruler. Thus is born a conspiracy against Caesar, leading to his murder on the Ides of March and setting up a confrontation between Caesar's supporters and the conspirators.
