Coronation Street

Up to date as of January 31, 2010

From Coronation Street Wiki

Julius Caesar is a play by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in 1599.

In Coronation Street, Bessie Street School put on a production of the play towards the end of 1963 and Ken Barlow took over the rehearsals. Whilst Valerie Barlow had some sympathies with the pressures of Ken's job when some of the rehearals took place at their home at 9 Coronation Street, she soon grew impatient with Ken's obsession with the play and also took a dislike to fellow teacher Dave Robbins. As cracks appeared in Ken and Val's relationship, particularly following the death of pupil Susan Schofield when she was run over outside the school, she grew closer to Dave and they eventually had an affair.

Kermit as Caesar

Julius Caesar (100 BC – 44 BC) was a Roman military and political leader, one of the most influential men in world history, and dictator for life of Rome. He played a critical role in the transformation of the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire. His conquest of Gaul extended the Roman world all the way to the Atlantic Ocean, and he was also responsible for the first Roman invasion of Britannia in 55 BC. Caesar was widely considered to be one of the foremost military geniuses of his time, as well as a brilliant politician and one of the ancient world's strongest leaders. In 42 BC, two years after his assassination, the Roman Senate officially sanctified him as one of the Roman deities.

Caesar also conducted a love affair and political alliance with Cleopatra, which has been the fodder for many plays and films. Caesar himself became the title figure of William Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar.
