Gesa Power House Theatre will screen the current Royal Shakespeare Company production of “Coriolanus” on Wednesday, November 1 at 6:00 p.m. This production is filmed live in Stratford-Upon-Avon and rebroadcast internationally to select screens.
A 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 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 the Royal Shakespeare Company’s collection of Shakespeare’s Roman plays with a visceral production which sees Sope Dirisu (“One Night in Miami”) take on the title role.
Reserved seating tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. Beer, wine, and snacks will be available for purchase. RSVP on Facebook
This screening has a runtime of approximately 3 hours 15 minutes, including a 15 minute introduction and one intermission.
Recommended for ages 18 and up.
