WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A mighty hero, Caius Martius, earns the new name of "Coriolanus" for his triumphs. However his inflexible self-belief and contempt for popular rule cause him to be condemned as a traitor and sent into exile. Desiring revenge against the Romans who banished him, he befriends his blood enemy, Aufidius, to launch an assault on his beloved city. Rome, in its terror, pleads with Coriolanus to end his crusade for vengeance. Directed by David Muse, former STC Associate Artistic Director, Coriolanus blurs the lines between hero and traitor in this politically driven tragedy.
