      A TRAGEDIE

      In 1978, the BBC set itself the task of filming all of William Shakespeare’s plays for television. The resulting productions, renowned for their loyalty to the text, utilised the best theatrical and television directors and brought great performances from leading contemporary actors.

      “Like to a lonely dragon that his fen
      Makes fear’d and talk’d of more than seen, your son,
      Will exceed the common, or be caught
      With cautelous baits and practice.”

      Caius Martius, renamed Coriolanus after his victorious attack on the city of Corioli, returns to Rome to become its joint head of state. A warrior and not a politician, Coriolanus finds his pride and arrogance turning the citizens against him. As he seeks to wreak his anger on the city, it is left to his mother, Volumnia, to prevent a bloody battle . . .

      Coriolanus is a compelling study of family, loyalty, war and politics. Of this production the Daily Telegraph wrote: “The silver-haired and silver tongued commands of Irene Worth’s Volumnia, the sinewy Aufidius of Mike Gwilym and the bluff Menenius of Joss Ackland all helped worthily to reflect back the towering emotion of Mr Howard’s Coriolanus.”


      -------------------------

      Enter a company of mutinous citizens with staves,
      Clubs and other weapons

      FIRST CITIZEN: "Before we proceed any further, hear me speak"

      ALL: "Speak, speak."

      FIRST CITIZEN: "You are all resolved rather to die than to famish?"

      ALL: "Resolved, resolved."

      FIRST CITIZEN: “First, you know Caius Martius chief enemy to the people?"

      Alan Howard
      Joss Ackland   Irene Worth

      with
      Mike Gwilym and Heather Canning

      Directed by Elijah Moshinsky

      ABOUT CORIOLANUS

      For Coriolanus, Shakespeare turned once more to Roman history as told by Plutarch and translated by Sir Thomas North in the Lives of the Noble Grecians and Romans published in 1579. This time he dramatized early events, not much subsequent to those he had written about previously in The Rape of Lucrece . . . He also drew on other writings including William Camden’s Remains of a Greater Work Concerning Britain, published in 1605 ~ This was Shakespeare’s last Roman play, written circa 1608 and appearing in the 1623 Folio.
