Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge
Director: Josie Rourke
Starring: Tom Hiddleston, Mark Gatiss
National Theatre Live’s 2014 broadcast of the Donmar Warehouse’s production of Coriolanus returns to cinemas by popular demand. Coriolanus features an Evening Standard Award-winning performance from Tom Hiddleston.
Coriolanus is 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. 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.
