Donmar Warehouse



by William Shakespeare

6 December 2013 – 13 February 2014

‘A fast, witty intelligent production’

‘Exciting and intense… Hiddleston’s performance is very special indeed’
Daily Telegraph

‘Tom Hiddleston returns to the London stage with a compelling performance’
Evening Standard

When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city falls 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.

Coriolanus was broadcast live in cinemas around the world on 30 January 2014 (and varying dates internationally) in partnership with National Theatre Live. For more details visit
