Recorded at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-Upon-Avon Angus Jackson directs Coriolanus, transporting us back to the emergence of the republic of Rome in a full-throttle war play that revels in the sweat of the battlefield.
Caius Martius Coriolanus is a fearless soldier but a reluctant leader. His ambitious mother attempts to carve him a path to political power, but he struggles to change his nature and do what is required to achieve greatness. In this new city state struggling to find its feet, where the gap between rich and poor is widening every day, Coriolanus must decide who he really is and where his allegiances lie.
Sope Dirisu (One Night in Miami, Donmar Warehouse, 2016) takes on the title role and completes the Royal Shakespeare Company’s collection of Shakespeare’s Roman plays.
Tickets: £14, Friends £13, Students £10, 16 & under £10
