By William Shakespeare
MA CLASSICAL AND CONTEMPORARY TEXT
Gordon Barr (Director)
Titus Andronicus returns home a hero from a brutal 10-year war with the Goths, having devoted her life to serving Rome. However the city she comes back to has changed beyond her comprehension. When Titus sacrifices a Goth prisoner, eldest son of their queen, Tamora, she sets in motion a terrifying chain of events which will destroy her family, her city and her own sanity.
Rape, murder, mutilation and cannibalism are the gruesome tools of Shakespeare's earliest and bloodiest tragedy - a damning indictment of cycles of revenge and a stark warning for today's society.
