Beware of the ides march
Cassius what you speak of is treason!
I have no personal; reason to spur at him.
February 44 BC. Julius Caesar has just reentered Rome in triumph after a victory in Spain. Caesar & citizens are celebrating in his honor. Some Romans fear Ceasar will become a dictator. Flavius & Marullus,are political enemies. Powerful & secret forces are working against Caesar. Even a soothsayer from the crowd warns, " Beware the ides of March," However, Caesar chooses to ignore the warning.
A group of senators have turned against Caesar,. Even Cassius, a long time political foe of Caesar's persuades Marcus Brutus, a close personal friend of Caesar, to join the conspiracy against him. At first, Brutus shares "some aim" with Cassius but does not wish "to be any further moved." Both agree to meet again.
Brutus struggles and considers whether or not to trust Caesar. He states, " It is not that he loves Caesar less, but that he loves Rome more." Cassius and others are especially jealous of Caesar's prestige and power and what he may become as King. Eventually they persuade Brutus to not only join the conspiracy but also lead it. Plans are made, the date is set on the day known as the ides of March, 15th day of the month. Caesar is to be murdered in the Senate chambers.
