Titus Andronicus

Directed by Catherine Mary and Jessica Gittins

"A production of such energy, visual imagination, skill & ingenuity, Blood, Sweat & Tea were up to the challenge."

Our story begins 70 years after a catastrophic nuclear war. The late emperor's sons, Saturninus, and Bassianus, are competing for the throne. Our protagonist, Titus Andronicus, is chosen by the people of Rome to be the new emperor. After a decade of war with the Goths, Titus comes home victorious with his sons, and his prisoners: Tamora, the Queen of the Goths; her three sons, and her lover Aaron. After Titus sacrifices one of Tamora's sons, Titus and Tamora enter a vicious cycle of revenge. A play which includes 14 deaths, mutilation and an act of cannibalism is surely not to be missed!
