Coriolanus – National Theatre

Coriolanus

We will be showing Donmar Warehouse’s 2014 production of William Shakespeare’s Coriolanus on Thursday 24th September 2015. 

Being re-screened by popular demand, this production of Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge stars Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, War Horse (film), BBC’s The Hollow Crown) in the title role and Mark Gatiss (Season’s Greetings at the National Theatre, BBC’s Sherlock) as Menenius.

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.
