Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge was filmed live at the Donmar Warehouse in 2014 and was one of the venue’s most popular ever productions.

Tom’s performance in the title role won him the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Actor and received a nomination for the Olivier Award for Best Actor.

The cast of Coriolanus includes Alfred Enoch, Deborah Findlay and Mark Gatiss.

When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her heroic leader and defender: Coriolanus. But he has enemies at home too.

The production of Coriolanus, which is free to watch, will be screened on the National Theatre’s YouTube channel from 7pm tonight (Thursday, June 4) and will then be available on demand for seven days.
