Royal Shakespeare Co. 2017


The Royal Shakespeare Company creates theatre at its best, filmed live from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon to cinemas around the world! Everyone at the RSC - from actors to armourers, musicians to technicians - plays a part in creating the world you see on stage, so wherever you experience the RSC, you experience work made in Shakespeare's home town. Angus Jackson, who recently directed the sell-out productions of Oppenheimer and Don Quixote, is the director for RSC's 2017 "Rome Season".



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 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.

Rome Season Director, Angus Jackson, completes the Royal Shakespeare Company’s collection of Shakespeare’s Roman plays with a visceral production which sees Sope Dirisu (One Night in Miami, Donmar Warehouse, 2016) take on the title role.
