When a society is oppressed, it becomes violent. How do we govern ourselves? In the chaos and disorder of 2017, Titus Andronicus is a commentary on the way this world could be going. Titus has returned from a brutal 10-year war having lost 21 sons in battle. Betrayed by his nation, and with his family in pieces, a series of bloody events follows as he and Tamora, Queen of the Goths begin a violent cycle of revenge. Rape, cannibalism, mutilation and murder are the gruesome tools in Shakespeare’s bloodiest play. Blanche McIntyre (The Two Noble Kinsmen 2016) directs David Troughton in this chillingly contemporary Titus Andronicus.
This production contains smoke effects, gunshots, sexual content, with violent and potentially distressing scenes.
