Can a man of righteous and inflexible ideals play the political game to gain the votes and trust of the Citizens? Coriolanus is the story of Caius Marcius, a war hero who single-handedly took the town of Corioles, but it is his mother Volumnia, one of Shakespeare’s most remarkable women, who wields the most potent power of all, persuasion. The ISC Company’s Coriolanus will be directed by Edward Daranyi, who was with the Stratford Festival of Ontario (the largest Classical Theatre Festival in North America,) for 21 years as a Director, Teaching Artist, and Director of Education.

How far would you go to secure democracy? Julius Caesar, one of Shakespeare’s most potent political thrillers, tells a story of the conflict between personal motivation and political ideology, rhetoric and action, stability and violence. These tensions play out through complicated and often competitive relationships between unforgettable characters. What does it mean to fight for freedom? ISC Artistic Director, Ariana Karp, will be directing Julius Caesar.
