Titus Andronicus archiveReturning to Rome from a war against the Goths, the general Titus Andronicus brings with him the queen Tamora and her three sons as prisoners of war. Titus' sacrifice of Tamora's eldest son to appease the ghosts of his dead sons, and his decision to refuse to accept the title of emperor, initiates a terrible cycle of mutilation, rape and murder. And all the while, at the centre of the nightmare, there moves the villainous, self-delighting Aaron. Returning to Rome from a war against the Goths, the general Titus Andronicus brings with him the queen Tamora and her three sons as prisoners of war. Titus' sacrifice of Tamora's eldest son to appease the ghosts of his dead sons, and his decision to refuse to accept the title of emperor, initiates a terrible cycle of mutilation, rape and murder. And all the while, at the centre of the nightmare, there moves the villainous, self-delighting Aaron. Grotesquely violent and daringly experimental, Titus was the smash hit of Shakespeare's early career, and is written with a ghoulish energy he was never to repeat elsewhere. This production revisits Lucy Bailey's spectacular Globe production of 2006.
Performers Indria Varma (Tamora), William Houston (Titus), Obi Abili (Aaron), Matthew Needham (Saturninus), Ian Gelder (Marcus), Steffan Donnelly, Dyfan Dwyfor, Samuel Edward-Cook, Paul Ham, Nicholas Karimi, Jake Mann, Brian Martin, Bryonie Pritchard, David Shaw-Parker, Flora Spencer-Longhurst, Jamie Wilkes.
