summerfolk

A large ensemble of friends are on vacation. Isolated and shielded from the tumultuous events of an empire in upheaval, these summer guests are free to enjoy life at leisure. But the call of revolution cannot be ignored by several members of the party. The play is an overwhelming call to arms – it is a gigantic invitation to live and embrace a life of passion, fulfilment and agency.

STARRING Elisa Armstrong, Kerrie-Anne Baker, Amy Bradney-George, James Christensen, Nick Clark, Alisha Eddy, Charlotte Fox, Tom Heath, Luke Lennox, David Meadows, Sarah Nicolazzo , Seton Pollock, Nicholas Rijs, Alexander Rouse, Rhyal Williams and Chenoa Williams.

Theatreworks St Kilda

 

Coriolanus is a consummate solider – a coddled mother's boy whose sole purpose is to find valour (and validation) through martial prowess. He is elected to Consul, and when unable to reconcile his honour and his virtue with democratic Rome, he is exiled. He turns on the city, leading his old enemies the Volsces against Rome.

 

"..a gripping, rapid-fire interpretation that encourages audiences to form their own opinions within its divisive world"

-Holi Walsh, Shakespeare Oz
