Background


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 Royal Shakespeare Company’s Rome season in London.


Following his sell-out hits of Oppenheimer (2014) and Don Quixote (2016) in Stratford-upon-Avon, Angus Jackson directs rising talent Sope Dirisu in the title role.


Synopsis


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.


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.
