The Vineyard Playhouse presents another installment of Shakespeare for the Masses, organized and edited by Chelsea McCarthy and Nicole Galland and performed by a group of actors. There are two shows scheduled: Saturday, Feb. 15, at 7 pm, and Sunday, Feb. 16, at 2 pm, both at the Katharine Cornell Theatre in Vineyard Haven.

The only Shakespeare play ever banned by a democratic government, according to a press release, “Coriolanus” is a “startlingly contemporary tale about political intrigue, political spin doctors, political treachery…and, as with any story involving proto-fascism, the importance of motherhood,” the press release continued. Admission is free. For more information, call 508-693-6450 or visit vineyardplayhouse.org.
