Shakespeare comes to MTG Century Theatre

In association with National Theatre Live, MTG Hawke’s Bay is pleased to present four screenings of the acclaimed theatre production Coriolanus at the MTG Century Theatre from Thursday 27 February to Sunday 9 March 2014.

MTG’s fantastic new digital cinema projection technology and big screen will provide the best viewing experience for this magnificent production in Hawke’s Bay.

Donmar Warehouse’s production of Coriolanus, Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge stars Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, War Horse (film), BBC's The Hollow Crown) in the title role and Mark Gatiss (Season's Greetings at the National Theatre, BBC's Sherlock) as Menenius, 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.
