Coriolanus is a great war general, but now it’s peacetime and he is persuaded to become a tribune and man of the people. But Coriolanus thinks the people are unworthy of a voice in their own government and treats them with contempt and rage. The power of self-governing is opposed to the power by the few. In addition, Coriolanus is too proud and stubborn to believe there might be a better way to solve things than by violence. This is one of the final tragedies by Shakespeare, and one of the least performed. It is also the most political play he ever wrote. (Tickets available at the ticket booth prior to performance/No reservation necessary).  Please bring a blanket or lawn chair and a picnic supper to the performance.
