Coriolanus

Shakespeare & Company

70 Kemble St., Lenox, Massachusetts

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Daniela Varon

A limited-run workshop production with actors on script, this project is an examination of what happens when an ambitious, arrogant general seizes power only to prove his complete ineptitude in a leadership role. Coriolanus, while successful in battle, learns that ultimately it is the people who choose their leaders, and in spite of joining with his arch enemy to exact revenge on the city of Rome that betrayed him, Coriolanus is doomed to meet the fate he deserves.

In this workshop production, actors will perform scenes from the play and then engage the audience in discussions exploring the themes and relationships. It follows a similar structure to Tina Packer's Women of Will.
