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.Performers Douglas Hodge (Titus Andronicus), Shaun Parkes (Aaron), Patrick Moy, Simon Wilson, Richard O'Callaghan, David Sturzaker, Eliot Giuralarocca, Thomas Padden, Jake Harders, Laura Rees, Chris Emmett, Geraldine Alexander, Sam Alexander, Richard Riddell, Claire Neilson.
