CORIOLANUS

by Thomas Sheridan, adapted from William Shakespeare

Coriolanus 600pxWilliam Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and familial betrayal is a shockingly contemporary tale of intrigue, spin-doctors, and divided politics. Coriolanus, a powerful and arrogant Roman general, holds nothing but contempt for the people of Rome. After the Tribunes banish him, Coriolanus raises an army to take back his position and exact his revenge; but his mother and the citizens have other plans.

Bag&Baggage continues our exploration of lost classics by staging the nearly lost 1749 adaptation of the Shakespeare play by Thomas Sheridan; Coriolanus, or the Roman Matron is largely credited with being the adaptation that saved Shakespeare’s work from an ignominious slide into history.

A tight, fast-paced, and character driven work, Sheridan’s Coriolanus retains all of Shakespeare’s passion and fire but trims the narrative and highlights the relationship between the titular character and Volumnia, Coriolanus’ powerful and not-to-be-trifled with mother. Our production of the Sheridan adaptation is the first in recorded American history.
