Scene 1 : [ Sets on Brutus place ]

Brutus still worried and confuse regarding conspiracy to kill Caesar. While he still had hesitation, his servant give him a letter that remind him how Rome need to be awaken from long nightmare ‘cause by Caesar. Not enough by the warning letter, the conspirators : Cassius, Casca, Decius, Cinna, Metellus, and Trebonius came late night to have Brutus’s pledge and sworn secrecy. But Brutus reject the idea of secret conspiracy, he still believe that this action need to be done not because of personal matters such as jealousy or envy, but as an good people of Rome. That why he still argue with all the others about killing all Caesar’s loyal friends, such as Mark Anthony or even Cicero. Brutus convinced that a massacre seems not only brutal, also can bring-out anger from people of Rome. Finally they all come to some agreement, and go back to their place, preparing for the big day.

(reads aloud)
“Caesar, beware of Brutus. Take heed of Cassius. Come not near Casca. Have an eye to Cinna. Trust not Trebonius. Mark well Metellus Cimber. Decius Brutus loves thee not. Thou hast wronged Caius Ligarius. There is but one mind in all these men, and it is bent against Caesar. If thou beest not immortal, look about you. Security gives way to conspiracy. The mighty gods defend thee!
     Thy lover,
