Marked for Life
The scars left by our failures can never be effaced, only transfigured: we are marked for life.
In her final talk for Lent, Dame Maria Boulding , OSB, identifies our scars with the wounds of Christ for we too are marked for resurrection.
Series producer DAVID CRAIG
I have come to look upon roles like Coriolanus as theatrical initiations on the grandest scale. A unique master of the art of tragedy takes the actor by the hand and leads him into the circle of a test, which ... will bring him face to face with the physical, mental, and spiritual centres of his 'being'.
Ian Hogg , who played the title role at Stratford ten years ago, presents his personal view of the play and the central character. The BBC Television
Shakespeare production of Coriolanus will be shown next Saturday on BBC2. Producer FRANK WARWICK
