NT Live presents

Coriolanus

by William Shakespeare

 

National Theatre Live’s 2014 broadcast of the Donmar Warehouse’s production of Coriolanus returns to cinemas by popular demand.

Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge, Coriolanus features an Evening Standard Award-winning performance from Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, War Horse (film), BBC’s The Hollow Crown) in the title role, directed by the Donmar’s Artistic Director Josie Rourke. The full company includes Jacqueline Boatswain, Peter De Jersey, Alfred Enoch, Deborah Findlay, Hadley Fraser, Mark Gatiss, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Elliot Levey, Rochenda Sandall, Helen Schlesinger, Mark Stanley and Dwane Walcott.

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.

Tickets: £12.00  Concessions: £10.00

The Comedy of Errors

DORKING HALLS | June 25 at 7.30pm

 

Shakespeare’s Globe on Screen:

The Comedy of Errors

 

Dorking Halls will screen the Globe Theatre Company’s production of early Shakespeare play The Comedy of Errors on June 25 at 7.30pm.

The Comedy of Errors is Shakespeare’s shortest comedy and one of his most farcical, with much of the humour coming from slapstick and mistaken identity, in addition to puns and word play.

It tells the story of two sets of identical twins that were accidentally separated at birth. Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio of Syracuse, arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their twin brothers, Antipholus of Ephesus and his servant, Dromio of Ephesus.

When the Syracusans encounter the friends and families of their twins, a series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities lead to wrongful beatings, a near-seduction, the arrest of Antipholus of Ephesus, and false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness, and demonic possession.

Booking Information

Tickets cost £16.50, and £13.50 for concessions. To book, call the Box Office on 01306 881717 or visit www.dorkinghalls.co.uk. Friends of Dorking Halls go for £12.50 when booking directly through the Box Office.
