Almost all repent in their election…

A prescient political tragedy set in the days of the early Roman Republic, Coriolanus tells the story of war hero Caius Martius—nicknamed Coriolanus—as he becomes embroiled in Roman politics and later turns against the state he once defended.

This production, directed by John Jaeger, will be set in in the 21st century with a 24/7 news cycle. Rome is a world where the 1-percenters rule and the common people have taken to the streets. Political activism faces the powerful status quo. Foreign military campaigns stretch domestic resources thin. Does this sound familiar?
