Here‚Äôs a roundup of events taking place this weekend in New Britain:
ÔĀģ‚Ää‚ÄäPolitical maneuvering, angry aristocrats, backstabbing treachery - all too familiar scenarios, especially if your name is Julius Caesar. Hole in the Wall Theater, 116 Main St., raises the curtain tonight on its take on the classic play written by William Shakespeare and adapted by HITW member William Arnold. Presented in a modern-day office, universal themes prove as true today as they did in ancient Rome.
Performances run at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays through June 17. A Sunday matinee takes 2 p.m. on June 4. The June 2 show is the ‚ÄúPay What You Can‚ÄĚ performance in which patrons make a donation of their choice for tickets.
