UCI Drama Presents A Dystopic Visioning of Shakespeare’s Roman War Tale CORIOLANUS

UCI Drama Presents CORIOLANUS

A Dystopic Visioning of Shakespeare’s Roman War Tale

IRVINE, Calif. (January 11, 2017) – UC Irvine’s Claire Trevor School of the Arts Department of Drama presents its first offering of 2017, Shakespeare’s classic military tragedy based on the life of legendary Roman leader Caius Marcius Coriolanus. UCI Drama’s current season explores xenophobia in its various forms, and perhaps there is no greater manifestation of pitting “us” against “them” than the intercultural alienation that culminates in war. The play, one of Shakespeare’s final tragedies, follows the rise and eventual fall of a man lionized for his valor and heroism, qualities that are manipulated by those around him to advance their own agendas. The show opens Saturday, February 4th with matinee and evening performances through Sunday, February 12th, 2017.
