Additionally, actors should be prepared to read from the text as some sides may be provided. It is recommended that actors familiarize themselves with the characters and material in the play.
About the Play: Widely thought of as Shakespeare’s bloodiest tragedy, Titus Andronicus takes us down into the depths of humanity’s most vile traits and revels in the horrors contained therein. It tells the story of a Roman general, returned from a terrible war, who becomes embroiled in a circle of bloody revenge with his enemies. Titus Andronicus teaches us the fruitless nature of revenge and the hollow satisfaction of twisted justice.
WARNING: Extreme violence, sexual violence, disturbing scenes.
