Theatre Performance in Southampton (2018)

February 15, 2018: 

Tom Hiddleston attended the official opening performance of The Shadow Factory at the Nuffield's new NST City theatre in Southampton. The Shadow Factory is a world premiere play about secret factories during WWII. The show is running thru March 3, 2018 and there's a special exhibition February 15-March 1, 2018.

Tom Hiddleston with artistic director Sam Hodges

Tom has a long history with the Nuffield Theatre. He was named Associate Actor of the theatre in 2014 and that title was eventually elevated to Patron. In 2015, Tom held an exclusive Q&A session at the Nuffield Theatre.  


Unfortunately, I haven't seen any press pictures of Tom wearing the coat and it's very difficult to make out what Tom is wearing from the few social media pictures that have come out. Tom is wearing a thick overcoat/peacoat which is reminiscent of the Paul Smith coat he were on stage during #RADAHamlet, Knowing Tom, it wouldn't be surprising at all if he kept that coat after production. 
There's a small mark on the arm of the coat Tom is wearing at the theatre performance that wasn't on the Hamlet coat. It could be some sort of tear that was mended or a zipper? Alas, I can't say anything with certainty based on the pictures. On the brightside, this is Tom Hiddleston so we will definitely be seeing more of the coat in the future. Hopefully I will be able to identify it then!

Underneath the coat, Tom is wearing his Ralph Lauren suit/geometric tie combo that has been his go to for semiformal events since 2015. (picture from the The Bridge Theatre last October.)  Tom is also wearing his new Mykita Mylon - Triton glasses.
