Soldier, war hero and defender of Rome, Coriolanus is also proud, arrogant and contemptuous of the people. But the Roman people are starving and hungry for change and, after speaking out against them one too many times, Coriolanus is driven out of Rome.
But when Coriolanus teams up with an old enemy to wage war on Rome, the city’s greatest hero becomes its greatest threat.
Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge makes its Bard in the Botanics’ debut in the stunning surroundings of the Kibble Palace Glasshouse.
