Workshop Production
Six Performances Only!

A limited run workshop production with actors on script, this project is an examination of what happens when an ambitious, arrogant general seizes power only to prove his complete ineptitude in a leadership role. Coriolanus, while successful in battle, learns that ultimately it is the people who choose their leaders, and in spite of joining with his arch enemy to exact revenge on the city of Rome that betrayed him, Coriolanus is doomed to meet the fate he deserves.

In this workshop production, actors will perform scenes from the play and then engage the audience in discussions exploring the themes and relationships. It follows a similar structure to Tina Packer's Women of Will.

Generously sponsored by Deborah and Bill Ryan.

Sunday, August 25, 3-8PM
Enjoy premium seating for the 3PM matinee of Coriolanus and then afterwards join Artistic Director Allyn Burrows, three-time Obie Award-winner and Tony Award Nominee John Douglas Thompson, and Founding Artistic Director Tina Packer for an exclusive gathering including lively conversation and an intimate dinner with specialty cocktails. There are a limited number of tickets for this special event so please book early.
Tickets are $250.

*FLEXpasses may not be used for this special event.
