See Jonathan Cake Star in Coriolanus at Free Shakespeare in the Park
Daniel Sullivan directs the drama for the Public Theater.
The Public Theater has released photos from its free Shakespeare in the Park production of Coriolanus, running through August 11 at the Delacorte Theater.
The production is described as follows: "Coriolanus, the Bard's blistering drama about a general voted into power by a populace hungry for change, and the unraveling that follows, returns for the first time since 1979.
