About: Seeking asylum after a brutal war has decimated Rome, the displaced survivors reconstruct their country’s tumultuous past to build a better future. As the republic faces threats from within and without - a war with the neighboring Voslces and civil strife between the wealthy elite and poor citizens- Coriolanus, a decorated war hero wary of compromise and bred for combat, becomes a pawn in others' political machinations. When he is exiled as a traitor to the people and enemy to democracy, his anger shatters the veneer of civility and plunges Rome into chaos. When all is said and done, can his mother and wife’s defiant vulnerability pierce the shield of toxic masculinity and save Rome from burning?
