Photo Flash: Royal Shakespeare Company's Production of CORIOLANUS Comes to River Street Theatre

The River Street Theatre (RST), a project of The Park Theatre, will be presenting the Royal Shakespeare Company's (RSC) new production of CORIOLANUS on Sunday, November 12 and Wednesday, November 15 (both at 2 PM). The presentation is part of the RST's Stage2Screen Series.

William Shakespeare's full-throttle war play that revels in the sweat of the battlefield, Coriolanus transports us back to the emergence of the republic of Rome. Caius Martius, later Coriolanus is a fearless soldier but a reluctant leader. His ambitious mother attempts to carve him a path to political power, but he struggles to change his nature and do what is required to achieve greatness. In this new city-state struggling to find its feet, where the gap between rich and poor is widening every day, Coriolanus must decide who he really is and where his allegiances lie.

Rome Season Director, Angus Jackson, completes our collection of Shakespeare's Roman plays with a visceral production which sees Sope Dirisu (One Night in Miami, Donmar Warehouse, 2016) takes on the title role. The play was captured on film in ultra-high definition at the RSC theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, England on October 11, 2017.

Tickets for CORIOLANUS are $20 each (students & teachers $15). More program and schedule information, as well as ticket purchases, can be found at riverst.org or by calling the RST Box Office (603) 532-8888. The after hours box office can be reached by calling OvationTix at(866) 811-4111.
