A man's revenge against his city... And what is a city if not its people?
In the aftermath of bloody riots, Caius Martius Coriolanus: famed champion of Rome is triumphant against Tullus Aufidius; enemy of the state.
But as his life of dedicated martial service is finally to be rewarded, will his famed disdain for populism and the fickle tide of public opinion be a death sentence to Rome?
Set in the 1980s, amidst political upheaval and social strife, the Edinburgh University Shakespeare Company presents a tragic dissection of democracy; exploring power, influence and the delicate interplay between the two.
