David Drummond to Star in Seattle Shakespeare's Coriolanus
Bred for the battlefield, the triumphant soldier Coriolanus discovers he is out of his depths in the Roman Senate. Pressed by his controlling and ambitious mother to seek the high office, Coriolanus refuses to curry favor with the citizens who hold his political aspirations in their hands. When the public rejects him, Coriolanus's fury causes a riot and his exile from Rome. Banished, he turns to his greatest enemy, Tullus Aufidius, to join forces and seek revenge on the city.
Also featured in the cast are Therese Diekhans (Volumnia), Mike Dooly (Tullus Aufidius) and Peter A. Jacobs (Menenius Agrippa).
The creative team will include Carol Wolfe Clay (set), Pete Rush (costumes), Kent Cubbage (lighting), Nathan Wade (sound), and Gordon Carpenter (fight and movement choreography).
