Two plays in Kilgore fest make it worth the drive

– “Compares favorably to the rendition we caught two weeks ago ... which is saying something, if one considers the larger company enjoys an annual budget 100 times more ($50 million vs. less than $500,000)”

– “Director Gregg W. Brevoort kept the action briskly cogent”

– “Sharp intelligence”

– “A stroke of casual brilliance”



The production history of Coriolanus, relatively thin in comparison to Shakespeare’s other tragedies, have put the play into two camps:  Coriolanus as a strictly political play – or – Coriolanus as a more human drama, a tragedy of personality and psychology.  Rehearsing the play here in Kilgore we have found it, of course, to be both.

The political context of the play, involving class struggle, warfare and power politics, keeps the momentum of the play energetic and forward-moving.  The tensions of the play are quickly introduced and excitingly developed.  It is Shakespeare at his most gripping, at his dramatic best.

Yet, the characters involved, rich and complex as they are, take us on a deeply personal journey, as well - and soon we see that the political crisis and the personal crisis ingeniously coincide.

Coriolanus’ journey becomes one of transformation and metamorphosis, as he battles his own upbringing and questions his own nature.  The welfare of the state teeters in that questioning.

In Coriolanus, we have some of Shakespeare’s most fascinating characters.  Volumnia, the mother, may very well be one of Shakespeare’s great female roles.  She begs comparison with Lady Macbeth, of course, one ambitious for her husband, Volumnia ambitious for her son.  And while Freudians the world over have been looking to Hamlet and his mother, Gertrude - wait until you meet Volumnia!  The mother-son relationship in Coriolanus could fill psychology text-books for generations to come!

So while it may feel like a political play, The Tragedy of Coriolanus is a penetrating work in that it goes much deeper.  Not known for its soaring poetry, it nevertheless soars emotionally, and makes Coriolanus an exhilarating piece of theatre.
