On December 9th, the Complete Readings of William Shakespeare continues with Coriolanus at the Open Eye Figure Theater. For T.S. Eliot, it was the greatest of Shakespeare’s tragedies. For Brecht, it captured his ideals 400 years before he shaped them. It’s a political thriller and a horrific war story; it’s a tale of personal hubris and the common shortcoming; it’s simplistic jingoism and a complex portrait of life. Coriolanus stands as one of the great enigmas of the Bard, challenging artist and audience alike to find meaning in its madness. Join us in unraveling the mysteries of one of the least-produced of Shakespeare’s masterpieces.
