Internationally recognized screen superstar and stalwart stage actor Tom Hiddleston returns to the Donmar Warehouse with the hotly anticipated new production of William Shakespeare’s CORIOLANUS and a new trailer has just been released.
The official synopsis of CORIOLANUS as per the Donmar Warehouse is as follows: “When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her hero and defender: Coriolanus. But he has enemies at home too. Famine threatens the city, the citizens’ hunger swells to an appetite for change, and on returning from the field Coriolanus must confront the march of realpolitik and the voice of an angry people.”
Of note, CORIOLANUS was filmed and broadcast as part of National Theatre Live on January 30, 2014.
Hiddleston previously starred in Shakespeare’s OTHELLO and CYMBELINE onstage, as well as in BBC’s THE HOLLOW CROWN film series last year, portraying Prince Hal in HENRY IV Parts 1 and 2 as well as HENRY V. Of note, THE HOLLOW CROWN continues tonight on PBS in the US.
