THEATRE
Shakespeare’s “Coriolanus” – presented by Hudson Shakespeare Company

In the warring city-state of Rome, neighboring tribes battle for wealth, power, and land. Coriolanus, Rome’s finest soldier, conquers the latest enemies of Rome, but returns only to be hated by her people. Trying to re-establish itself, Rome seeks a Consul and Coriolanus seems to be just the person for the job — but will her pride and disdain for the people get in the way? Can Coriolanus win the hearts of the Roman people? Can a soldier make a good politician? And, what happens to a person abandoned by their home?
