2. Coriolanus

The National Theatre Live presents Coriolanus, Shakespeare's searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge.

Starring Tom Hiddleston√ (The Avengers, War Horse) in the title role and Mark Gatiss√ (BBC's Sherlock) as Menenius√, the production was staged at the Donmar Warehouse and directed by the Donmar's Artistic Director Josie Rourke.

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.

Catch the show at Palace Byron Bay this Saturday at 1pm and this Monday at 12.30pm.
