Notes

General
`The mix of costume styles adds a deeper dimension to the production, with Coriolanus resplendent in dress blues, white fatigues, and black leather. The Roman army uses Nazi-styled gas masks while the Volscians are a punk-leather cross, reminiscent of the streets of New York - an intoxicating mix that shocks and entertains’. [Jim Lingerfelt and Roger Kershaw reviewing at http://www.stage-door.org/reviews]. (accessed 2/2008).
History
The production ran in repertory 13 May - 9 November 1997.
