"A terrific cast give a masterclass in power and paranoia in this tremendous modern-day revival of Shakespeare's tale of revenge."
Blanche McIntyre (The Two Noble Kinsmen 2016) directs RSC star David Troughton in this chillingly contemporary Titus Andronicus.
When a society is oppressed, it becomes violent. How do we govern ourselves? In the chaos and disorder of 2017, Titus Andronicus is a commentary on the way this world could be going.
Titus has returned from a brutal 10-year war having lost 21 sons in battle. Betrayed by his nation, and with his family in pieces, a series of bloody events follows as he and Tamora, Queen of the Goths, begin a violent cycle of revenge. Rape, cannibalism, mutilation and murder are the gruesome tools in Shakespeare's bloodiest play.
