National Theatre Live: Coriolanus

Sunday, June 5 - Monday, June 6, 2016

From National Theatre Live comes encore presentations of Donmar Warehouse’s acclaimed production of CORIOLANUS, Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge, with Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, Speilberg’s War Horse, BBC’s The Hollow Crown) in the title role and Mark Gatiss (Season’s Greetings at the National Theatre, BBC’s Sherlock) as Menenius, directed by the Donmar’s Artistic Director Josie Rourke.

When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her hero and defender: Coriolanus. But he has enemies at home too. 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.” – The Independent

“Unfailingly vivid – intelligent, brisk and brutal.” – Metro

The Donmar Theatre production of Coriolanus is generously supported by Radisson Blu Edwardian London and Clive and Sally Sherling.
