Shakespeare's Coriolanus: A Summersplosion Project

  • ACT I Studio 81 Peeples Valley Road Southeast, Suite 102 Cartersville, GA, 30121 United States (map)

Please join us for the first event in our upcoming season! With director Moritz Arnold at the helm, participants will tackle Shakespeare's Coriolanus with a fresh, space-age vision. Using the collaborative style of our Summersplosion program as a baseline, the cast will present something very new using this classic story.

The citizens of Rome are hungry. Coriolanus, the hero of Rome, a great soldier and a man of inflexible self-belief despises the people. His extreme views ignite a mass riot. Rome is bloody. Manipulated and out-maneuvered by politicians and even his own mother Volumnia, Coriolanus is banished from Rome. He offers his life or his services to his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius.
