Caius Martius Coriolanus is a fearless soldier but a reluctant leader. His ambitious mother attempts to carve him a path to power yet he struggles to change his nature and do what is required to achieve greatness. Now he must decide who he really is and where his allegiances lie.

A full-throttle war play that revels in the sweat of the battlefield, Coriolanus transports us back to the emergence of the republic of Rome.
 
Set in a new city state struggling to find its feet, where the gap between rich and poor widens every day, this visceral production opens the RSC’s Rome season in London

“Ambitious production, one that's heavy on blood-soaked spectacle, but light on political insight.”

Alice Saville (Time Out, Independent)
