An oppressed society in the throws of a political upheaval, the brothers Saturninus and Bassianus are in contention for the Roman Emperorship.
Titus Andronicus, Rome’s most honoured general returns from wars against the Goths with their queen, Tamora, her sons and her lover, Aaron the Moor, as captives. Her eldest son is sacrificed by Titus; she vows revenge. Power, Manipulation and revenge, in spades.
14 killings, six severed members, 1 rape (or 2 or 3, depending on how you count), 1 live burial, 1 case of insanity and 1 of cannibalism – an average of 5.2 atrocities per act, or one for every 97 lines. An uncompromising play that does not give in, let up or bow down to niceties or delicate sensitivities.
