Coriolanus

Dear Friends,

We just wanted to share with you a wonderful opportunity to experience a night of Shakespeare’s most political play, Coriolanus—hosted by the Shakespeare Society and starring Chukwudi Iwuji (whom we mentioned in our post last week about summer acting classes) starring in the leading role.

According to the Shakespeare Society:

We continue our look at Shakespeare’s most political and controversial play with the brilliant Chukwudi Iwuji in the title role. After a week spent studying, discussing, reading and exploring the play as part of our Shakespeare Works Artist Residency program, actors Peter Francis James, Merritt Janson, Jesse Perez, Jay O. Sanders, Phumzile Sitole, and more will take the stage of the Pearl Theatre Company with director Michael Sexton for an evening of lively conversation and readings from the play.

The performance will be held Tuesday, June 28th at 7:00pm at the Pearl Theatre.  To learn more, visit the Shakespeare Society or to purchase tickets click here.

Best,

Philip & Marilyn
