    Coriolanus by William Shakespeare

    Directed by Josie Rourke, A Donmar Warehouse Production

    When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her hero and defender, Coriolanus. But he, too, has enemies at home and must confront the voice of an angry people. This Donmar Warehouse production of Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge features Tom Hiddleston (War Horse movie) in the title role.
