Coriolanus

York Shakespeare Project presents

A unique opportunity to see an all-female production of Shakespeare’s tale of power, politics and manipulation.

“Would you have me false to my nature?”
Caius Martius Coriolanus II.ii

Ancient Rome. The beginnings of the Roman Republic. Rome is in turmoil both in conflict with its warring neighbours but also within its own gates with its riotous citizens. Caius Martius, a soldier and military leader, is all set to become consul of Rome, but though he has the support of the Senate, he is hated by citizens and tribunes alike.

Who will rule, the people or the Senate? And what happens when a leader is betrayed by a city he has bled for? Is the system or the individual at fault?

This production asks the question: is it better to be true to yourself, or to compromise for the good of the state?

This will be play no.34 in York Shakespeare Project’s ambitious plan to stage all the bard’s plays by 2021.

28th, 29th, 30th November – 7.30.PM
