Henry V

 

It’s 1962, and with the arms race and space race at full throttle, pressure is mounting for the new ruler Henry and his cabinet cronies to do something.  Well…anything, really. After the monarch of France insults him, power hungry Henry leaps into war (with some prodding from his “advisors”).  Outnumbered and facing sure disaster, Henry’s political instinct kicks in to gamble on one last epic fight. “Henry V” exposes the behind the scenes maneuverings of a government’s war machine.

Coriolanus

 

Bred for the battlefield, the triumphant soldier Coriolanus discovers he is out of his depths when elected to the Roman Senate where the politics can be twice as treacherous as warfare. Behind his rapid rise is his powerful mother who raised him to be a warrior of no equal. Shakespeare makes politics personal in this tragedy by plumbing the depths of emotion between mother and son, pride and patriotism, ego and honor.
