RSC Gunpowder Season – explosive Elizabethan and Jacobean dramas of dissent, staged by the RSC in 2005.

Sejanus is a gripping tragedy from a writer better known for his comedies, first performed in 1603 with Burbage and Shakespeare in the cast (the latter’s last recorded appearance as an actor).

The Emperor Tiberius raises a statue to honour his right-hand man Sejanus, unaware that the man he’s honouring is ruthlessly working his way to the top, destroying everyone in his path.
