Shuga Pie Supreme returned to Shakespeare in the Theatre at The Brick with Chris Tyler’s v political v now adapaptation of Coriolanus!

In Their food tastes better when they see us starving (or, Coriolanus), a warhawk fights to appeal to the same plebeians she holds in utter contempt. A feverish collision of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus and Brecht’s unfinished adaptation by the same name, this devised multimedia work hypertextually explores the volatile nature of democracy and the complicated role the military-industrial complex plays in the continued subjugation of working class people around the world. 

August 20-25th

Featuring Andrew D'Anneo, Madeleine Dauer, Chris Ignacio, Molly Jones, Yael Rizowy, Tricia Sorresso

Stage managed by Callan Gies

Designed by Sonya Plenefisch

Produced by Charles Quittner & Sarah George
