But what of Cicero? Shall we sound him?

Hello again.

If you’ve been paying attention – and we like to think you have* – you’ll know that with one more cast member you’ll have met half of us.

And here that full half is!

The Proper Villains now gladly throw in your face, taking on the dual roles of Cicero and Metellus Cimber, the superb Tom Heath!


A graduate of the VCA, Tom comes to theatre from a musical background, appearing in Opera Australia’s children’s chorus Carmen, Orpheus in the Underworld and Otello.

Tom’s roles at VCA include Agamemnon in Agamemnon, Kulygin in Chekhov’s Three Sisters, Father Flynn in John Patrick Shanley’s Doubt, Oliver, Corin and William in Shakespeare’s As You Like It and Kynaston in Jeffery Hatcher’s Compleat Female Stage Beauty.

Tom was the 2011 recipient of the Richard Pratt bursaries for achievements in the First and Second Years.

This year Tom devised and performed the role of Man, in a piece called We are Perpendicular for the Canberra festival You Are Here in 2013.

To see Tom take on the Roman Senate, book your tickets for Julius Caesar here – http://www.melbournefringe.com.au/fringe-festival/show/julius-caesar/

*If you have been paying attention, you’ll also have noticed that all the characters we have introduced so far have names beginning with C…..Coincidence? Perhaps. But will we ever have a character whose name doesn’t begin with C? Stay tuned to find out…
