by William Shakespeare
A Donmar Warehouse production.
Tom Hiddleston (Betrayal, The Avengers, The Night Manager) plays the title role in Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge.
When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls, once more, on her hero and defender: Coriolanus. But he has enemies at home, too.
“A fast, witty, intelligent production.” - The Guardian
As famine threatens the city, the citizens’ hunger swells to an appetite for change, and on returning from the field, Coriolanus must confront the march of realpolitik and the voice of an angry people.
“Tom Hiddleston has blazing stellar power...magnificent.” - Independent
Josie Rourke (Les Liaisons Dangereuses) directs the company, including Mark Gatiss (The Madness of George III, League of Gentlemen), Hadley Fraser (Long Day’s Journey Into Night, Young Frankenstein), Alfred Enoch (Tree, Harry Potter film series) and Deborah Findlay (Allelujah!, Top Girls).
“A complex, compelling central performance.” - Time Out
Coriolanus was filmed live on stage at the Donmar Warehouse in 2014 by National Theatre Live.
