Shakespeare touring company To The Elephant is returning to Upottery this year with its production of Coriolanus

Following the resounding success of Troilus and Cressida last year, Shakespeare touring company To The Elephant is returning to Upottery with a production of Coriolanus.

It will be presented at The Old Manor Garden for four nights, from 7pm, August 31 to September 2, inclusive.

Picnickers are welcome to use the garden from 5.30pm.

Tickets are £12, concessions £10 and £8, and are available from 01823 461343 or email sklittlewood@icloud.com

The play runs for two hours and it is advised that members of the audience take along portable chairs and warm clothes.

The company of young actors perform under the direction of Kate Littlewood, who was with The Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford on Avon and became assistant director to Trevor Nunn.

Coriolanus plunges us into the heart of power in ancient Rome. In the midst of sectarian warfare, Rome tears its self apart.
