Corinium Cinema to screen RSC ‘Live from Stratford-upon-Avon’


Corinium Cinema to screen RSC ‘Live from Stratford-upon-Avon’

The Corinium Museum in Cirencester is delighted to announce it will be screening the Royal Shakespeare Company ROME season of plays at the Corinium Cinema. The performances are filmed live from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon and broadcast to cinemas around the country and internationally.
 
Cinema goers will be able to track the decline of an empire through Titus Andronicus live on 9th August, followed by the tragic thriller Coriolanus on 11th October. There will also be a chance to watch Shakespeare’s greatest comedy Twelfth Night on 14th February 2018.
 
Screening Dates:

Titus Andronicus, Wednesday 9 August, 7pm
The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’s most bloody play. Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss, who relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder. Rape, cannibalism and severed body parts fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt society.
 
Coriolanus, Wednesday 11 October, 7pm
A full-throttle war play that revels in the sweat of the battlefield, Coriolanus transports us back to the emergence of the republic of Rome. Caius Martius Coriolanus is a fearless soldier but a reluctant leader. His ambitious mother attempts to carve him a path to political power, but he struggles to change his nature and do what is required to achieve greatness. In this new city state struggling to find its feet, where the gap between rich and poor is widening every day, Coriolanus must decide who he really is and where his allegiances lie.
 
Twelfth Night, 14 February, 7pm

Twelfth Night is a tale of unrequited love – hilarious and heart breaking. Twins Viola and Sebastian, are separated in a shipwreck and forced to fend for themselves in a strange land.
 
Tickets cost £17 per adult or £15 for Friends of Corinium Museum, Season Ticket Holders and Roman Society Members. To book please call into the Corinium Museum or telephone 01285 655611. For more information about the Corinium Cinema please go to www.coriniummuseum.org
