See and hear Shakespeare and his contemporaries in a new light when the Mount Prospect Public Library Foundation brings The Shakespeare Project of Chicago back for a theatrical reading. As there are no sets, props, or costumes, you may find the Project’s readings help you truly experience Shakespeare’s words.
At 7 p.m. the preshow introduction begins followed by the performance. If time allows, a discussion and opportunity to interact with the actors and creative team will further enrich your experience. This program is sponsored by the Mount Prospect Public Library Foundation, which raises funds for special programming and events.
“Nature teaches beasts to know their friends.”
One of Shakespeare’s Roman tragedies, Coriolanus recounts the journey of a successful Roman general, who, after achieving multiple successes in the military, turns his ambition to politics and leadership of his people. However, his personality and temperament are ill-suited for his new role and he is ultimately deposed. Seeking revenge against his enemies, and in his attempt to reclaim his power and prestige, he forges alliances with others that ultimately lead to his demise. Associate artistic director Barbara Zahora directs.
