Shakespeare’s final tragedy is also considered one of his greatest. This powerful political drama tells the story of the great Roman general whose arrogance leads to his own downfall. One of Shakespeare’s most provocative plays, Coriolanus is a mesmerizing tale that unfolds as both personal tragedy and political thriller. From exalted war hero – to heavy handed politician to finally, exile – Coriolanus is manipulated by his power hungry mother Volumnia (one of Shakespeare’s greatest female roles) and his unwillingness to compromise his principles as his world spirals out of control in his crusade for vengeance.
