To The Elephant follow their resounding success of Troilus and Cressida at Edfringe 2016 and The Rose Playhouse, with Coriolanus, another rarely performed play by Shakespeare. Like Julius Caesar, his Coriolanus, plunges us into the heart of power in Ancient Rome. In the midst of prolonged sectarian warfare, Rome tears itself apart, unable to support the commander who wins victory after victory for the State.
Coriolanus contains themes of – Honour, Power, Democracy and Betrayal – it is a prime example that Shakespeare is ‘for all time’.

The Rose Playhouse, Bankside’s first theatre, 1587.
The Rose is an indoor archaeological site, it is advisable to dress with an extra layer as there is no heating. There are also no toilets so please use those at Shakespeare’s Globe just a few hundred meters away.
