By William Shakespeare
Directed by Josie Rourke

This screening was recorded from an earlier live performance.

National Theatre Live broadcasts the Donmar Warehouse’s production of Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge. Coriolanus features Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, the film version of 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 and is directed by Donmar 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 upon returning from the field, Coriolanus must confront the march of realpolitik and the voice of an angry people.
