Summary

Many say that Shakespeare’s play Coriolanus is in the grand manner of King Lear or Hamlet. Coriolanus is a great politically themed and tragic play.

The play centres on the warrior Caius Marcius Coriolanus who, aside from his military prowess and political alliances, supports the old patrician model of Roman authority and is therefore totally out of touch with the needs of the ordinary people. This flaw in his character makes for a great play and is performed by members of the Marlowe Company.

A lot of "flourish"

I enjoyed all the performances and would recommend this version. My only complaint was that each and every flourish indicated in the text was too long. This added unnecessary length to an already fairly long play. On the upside, it is completely faithful to the text.
