BBC News – Tom Hiddleston is to play the title role in Coriolanus as part of the autumn season at the Donmar Warehouse.
The Avengers star last appeared on stage at the tiny London venue in 2008.
Directed by Josie Rourke, the Shakespearean drama opens in December with Mark Gatiss also in the cast.
August sees the premiere of Nick Payne’s drama The Same Deep Water As Me, about “cash for crash” lawyers.
Following in October, Call the Midwife star Jessica Raine and Linda Bassett are to star in Arnold Wesker’s Roots.
“At the centre of all these plays is a sense of young people trying to find their place in the world,” said Rourke, the Donmar’s artistic director, announcing the season on Monday.
Describing Hiddleston “one of our leading young classical actors”, Rourke said she envisaged Coriolanus would be a “contemporary” production.
