“Nature teaches beasts to know their friends…”
Coriolanus, Act 2, Scene 1
Class war and the struggle for equity and justice were unlikely themes for a theater company called the King’s Men, but Shakespeare’s Coriolanus pits a leader whose pride places him so far above his subjects that he can scarcely hide his disdain. When hunger drives the people to sedition, Coriolanus wins back their regard in feats of battle—only to lose their faith and his life. Unbending pride and untrammeled power make a deadly mix in this riveting tragedy.
