Coriolanus: EP 3 - I'll Shake Your Bones

Season 4, Episode 3
Oct 22, 07:00 AM

Disdaining democracy, Coriolanus mockingly begs the people for their votes, stirring up so much resentment that the mob turns against him and the Tribunes charge him with treason.

As skeptical citizens discuss whether or not to vote for Coriolanus, Menenius tries to persuade him to speak kindly to them. Instead, he mockingly begs for their votes, but still wins enough to be approved by the Tribunes. Brutus and Sicinius, in turn, stoke resentment among the people, urging them to storm the Capitol to block Coriolanus’s confirmation before he takes away their freedoms. Enraged, Coriolanus rails against democracy, spurring Brutus and Sicinius to have him arrested for treason and brought to Traitors Rock before an angry mob.

Welcome to the third episode of the Play On Podcasts' Series Coriolanus.
