TL;DR (may contain spoilers): Coriolanus hates the people, and they banish him from Rome. Coriolanus loves his mother, and she stops him from attacking Rome. He dies.

Roman general Coriolanus makes his name defeating an enemy army and defending Rome. The Senate nominates him as consul but he cannot win the people’s vote, so he is banished from Rome and allies with his old enemy. He comes to attack Rome, his mother persuades him not to, and his new-found ally kills him for the betrayal.

Mark Petrich has 50 years of close association with the works of Shakespeare and is his first love. As an actor, he appeared in numerous productions, including: Hamlet, MacBeth, King Lear, Romero and Juliet, Richard III, and The Tempest.

He was a member of Jonathan McMurtry’s Shakespeare Master Class which explored the canon for eight years. Mark studied at ACT in San Francisco with Dakin Matthews and with David McCellan at the Old Globe.
