Sarah and Dave think it would be fun to direct a play for drama club. And they both love Julius Caesar. What could go wrong?

How about a drama diva who wants to play the lead, wants her way with the story, and wants a post-death dance number? Rome is now in Georgia, Brutus is allergic to peanut butter, and there might be a giant killer robot on his way to crush Caesar's enemies. Nothing wrong at all.
