FIRST CITIZEN, a staged reading

Performance Dates

A contemporary response to Shakespeare's Coriolanus.

Shakespeare tells histories through the eyes of the powerful: the kings, the queens, and the generals. This contemporary response to Coriolanus travels the same whirlwind of political events that shook the foundation of Rome--this time, through the eyes of common citizens.

The Taffety Punk Generator project, which encourages the development of new work, presents a reading of First Citizen. It's a new take on an old story of a powerful military leader, as told by the plebeians.
