Sheffield Theatres announce Coriolanus cast
The complete cast of Sheffield Theatres’ upcoming production of Coriolanus has been announced. Under the direction of Robert Hastie, who received critical acclaim for his production of Julius Caesar in 2017, the adaption is set to generate considerable excitement as a contemporary reading of the classic tragedy. The performance stars Tom Bateman as the tragic hero, with Hermon Berhane as Virgilia and Malcom Sinclair as Menenius Agrippa. Sheffield Theatre’s intergenerational company, Sheffield People’s Theatre, complete the cast.
Running at the Crucible Theatre from Friday 6th – Saturday 28th March, the play is based on the life of Caius Marcius Coriolanus, a Roman military commander who seeks power following his defeat of the Volscian army. In timeless Shakespearian style, the play chronicles Coriolanus’ fall from political power after losing the favour of his public, and his last-ditch attempt at to seize power as he condemns democratic rule and the city he once championed.
Tickets for the performance are available now from the Sheffield Theatre’s Box Office, online at sheffieldtheatres.co.uk or on 01142496000.
