What kind of mothering raises the best servant to the people? Is it conditional or unconditional? This year’s Public Theater presentation of Shakespeare in the Park delivers an examination of mothering for political success in Coriolanus at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, directed by Daniel Sullivan.
The Public Theater continues its 2019 free Shakespeare in the Park season with Coriolanus, directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan.
Shakespeare's war-torn tragedy was previously staged at the Delacorte Theater in 1965 and 1979.
Tickets are distributed for free on a first come, first served basis in Central Park on the morning of each performance.

Shakespeare in the Park presents Coriolanus, the Bard’s blistering drama about a general voted into power by a populace hungry for change, and the unraveling that follows. Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan directs a modern-day version of this riveting epic of democracy and demagoguery.
