By William Shakespeare
Robert G. Anderson, director

In an adaptation by doctoral candidate Vincent Carlson, the play centers on Roman general Coriolanus, who makes his name defeating an enemy army and defending Rome. The Senate nominates him as consul, but he cannot win the people's vote, so he is banished from Rome and allies with his old enemy. He comes to attack Rome, his mother persuades him not to, and his newfound ally kills him for the betrayal. One of Shakespeare’s most brutal and truthful plays, Coriolanus contains soaring language, exhilarating action, and questions for today.

This performance contains adult content and is intended for mature audiences.

This performance includes minor audience interaction.
