    Staged at the Stratford Festival and named on many 2018 year-end critics "best of" lists, the Stratford Festival's "riveting" and "exhilarating" (The New York Times) production of Shakespeare's Coriolanus, has been called "the show of the decade... a landmark production for the Stratford Festival. Maybe for William Shakespeare, too" (The Globe and Mail), and "the greatest contemporary staging of this play that I have ever seen" (Chicago Tribune).

    The production is directed by genre-defying theatre artist Robert Lepage and stars Andre Sills, "a magnetic and imposing actor" (The New York Times), with a stellar cast delivering "performances that send shivers down the spine" (The Globe and Mail). Lepage takes the story of the rise and fall of a legendary general who must face off against the angry Roman mob and infuses it with the energy of Occupy Wall Street and the Arab Spring.

    "By resetting dialogue-heavy scenes as talk radio gabfests, and representing the uninformed mob as anonymous voices on social media, Robert Lepage helps clarify Shakespeare's portrait of a world, like ours, overwhelmed with insincerity" (The New York Times). He "wrangles a difficult play into a heart-stopping narrative" (Chicago Tribune), "rendering a clear and cinematic version that's riveting, invigorating and smart" (The Globe and Mail). "Rarely has Lepage's reputation as a cinematic theatremaker been more earned" (Toronto Star).
