4 star review: Coriolanus

4 star review: Coriolanus

Coriolanus★★★★

When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls on her hero, Coriolanus. But famine threatens the city and the people want change, so Coriolanus is forced to confront the march of an angry, politicised and re-energised people with disastrous consequences. Conflict, revenge and the power of the people are all explored in this contemporary new staging of Shakespeare’s political tragedy.

Performed by our BA Acting students, Coriolanus was given a 4 star review from The Herald.

“This makes for a production that is full of strident confrontation, but which retains a thoughtful intelligence that never takes sides. As the common people sit back and slumber into complacency once more, the death of a tyrant becomes one more public sideshow to snack on as the world collapses around them.”
