What's On

Titus Andronicus
 

War hero. Mother. Monster.

21 children left dead on the battleground, Titus returns home to Rome with Queen of the Goths, Tamora, and her three sons as prisoners of war. Bell Shakespeare presents Titus Andronicus - Shakespeare’s terrifying tale of two families locked in a violent cycle of chaos and bloody vengeance.

A confronting and gory revenge tragedy, Titus Andronicus was the smash hit of Shakespeare’s early career.

Political intrigue and corruption turn to rape, cannibalism, mutilation and murder as people become pawns in a torturous battle of wills. Shakespeare dives into the depths of humankind’s most vile traits and invites audiences to revel in the horrors that are found within. Grotesquely violent and boldly experimental, Shakespeare’s bloodiest play is an interrogation of power and paranoia.

Directed by Adena Jacobs (Belvoir’s Wizard of Oz and English National Opera’s Salome) and starring Jane Montgomery Griffiths(MTC’s Macbeth) as Titus Andronicus, this production will have you questioning where does the cycle of revenge truly begin and end?
