Seeking (all roles that will be or may be on Equity contracts are listed and available):


Man, mid 20s – mid 40s. Strong-willed general who understands the battlefield from years of fierce fighting. He's a formidable and dangerous fighter, and a brilliant and daring strategist. He is most at home when he is away from home. What makes him a powerful fighter also makes him a terrible politician. He doesn't suffer fools, and is apt to speak from impulse and anger rather than from reason. The confidence – even arrogance – that cowers his foes on the battlefield provides an easy target for his political enemies. Seeking an actor with extensive stage experience and experience with heightened language.

Menenius Agrippa: Man, 35-55. Friend to Coriolanus.

Volumnia: Woman, 45-60. Mother to Coriolanus.

Sicnius Velutus: Man, 35-50. Tribune of the people.

Cominius: Man, 30-45. General against the Volscians.

Tullus Aufidius: Man, 30-45. General of the Volscians.

Junius Brutus: Man, 35-50. Tribune of the people.
