Events & Programs

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Shakspeare By The Sea

CORIOLANUS
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Mallory Fisher

This production marks Artistic Director Mallory Fisher's directorial debut with the company, and will broaden the appeal of Shakespeare by re-examining one of his lesser known and infrequently staged plays—Coriolanus—in a contemporary context. Set in present-day Newfoundland, the production will underscore the play’s extant themes of corruption of power, instability of capitalism, desensitization to violence, and toxic masculinity to examine our current political and social zeitgeist.

Tickets: $25 (general admission), $20 (students, seniors, unwaged)
