The Royal Shakespeare Company presents Titus Andronicus!
The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’s bloodiest play. Blanche McIntyre (The Two Noble Kinsmen) returns to the Royal Shakespeare Company to direct Shakespeare’s brutal revenge tragedy. Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss. He relinquishes power, but leaves Rome in disorder. Rape, cannibalism and mutilation fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt society. Shakespeare presents us with murder as entertainment and, as the body count rises, poses questions about sexuality, family, class and society.
