In a world where war is common place, children take arms and madness takes control, Titus Andronicus is more relevant than ever. Through its relentless horror, the undeniable poetry of human tragedy emerges in full force, demanding we examine the very root of violence and judge its various acts.
Shakespeare’s most blood thirsty spectacle begins with the great Roman general, Titus Andronicus returning home victorious after a long and brutal war with the Goths.
His first act is to ritually sacrifice the eldest son of the Goth Queen, Tamora, his prisoner. However, when the corrupt Saturninus is made Emperor and surprisingly makes Tamora his queen, a new battle ensues as Tamora, and then Titus, enact a tale of double revenge. As part of the Compleate Workes of Shakespeare, this is Long Cloud's final production of the 2009 season.
