Sope Dirisu (One Night in Miami, Donmar Warehouse, 2016) and Charles Aitken (Sleepy Hollow, The Girl on the Train) star in a full-throttle war play that revels in the sweat of the battlefield.
Director Angus Jackson completes the Royal Shakespeare Company's collection of Shakespeare's Roman plays with a visceral production of Coriolanus that transports us back to the emergence of the republic of Rome.
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.
