We are excited to announce the 17th season of free Shakespeare on the Common, thanks to the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company. This season is sure to be a hit with the performance of Coriolanus.
Coriolanus is a political drama that chronicles the rise and fall of a powerful general who battles enemies abroad and his resulting popularity at home in Rome. While the war hero triumphs in the heat of battle, his struggles with politics, responsibility and government threaten to undo him.
The Commonwealth Shakespeare Company is ready to thrill and entertain audiences at these free performances of Coriolanus throughout the summer in the city. The shows begin at the Parkman Bandstand this Wednesday, July 25th and will take place every Tuesday-Saturday night at 8 P.M. On Sunday evenings, the performances will begin at 7 P.M. Coriolanus is approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes long. Catch an ASL showing of Coriolanus on August 11th.
We hope you will be able to join us at the Boston Common for these free performances! Many thanks to our friends at the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company for all their effort and time. These shows embody what the Boston parks are all about–providing free resources that are available to all.
