When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her hero and defender: Coriolanus. But 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.

Josie Rourke directs Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge, with Tom Hiddleston making his return to the Donmar in the title role.

It's a tough play - the dialogue is not as fluid as a more modern-sounding Othello or the comedies - but riveting in its own way, thanks largely to Hiddleston's performance and the intimacy of the Donmar.
