Vengeance is in my heart, death in my hand,
Blood and revenge are hammering in my head.
Victorious in his wars against the Goths, Roman general Titus Andronicus brings home as his captives Queen Tamora, her lover Aaron, and her three sons. Ignoring Tamora’s pleas, Titus hands over her eldest son for sacrifice—thus setting in motion a relentless cycle of revenge as horrific as it is grotesque. The most shocking play in Shakespeare’s canon—an extraordinary fusion of the savage and the sublime!
Presenting this play in a Theatre in Round blackbox setting provides the audience with the feeling of being more than observers in this web of politics and betrayal.
