The decay of Rome reaches vicious depths in Shakespeare’s most brutal and bloody play. ‘Consistently excellent’ (The Times), Blanche McIntyre directs the epic conclusion of the Rome Season.
Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss. He relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder. Rape, cannibalism and severed body parts fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt world.
Shakespeare’s gory revenge presents us with murder as entertainment. As the body count piles up, the tragedy poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family, class and society. David Troughton leads the cast.
This production contains smoke effects, gunshots and sexual content. There are violent scenes throughout that some audience members may find distressing.
Tickets are subsidised with thanks to funding from the Campus Community Fund and Student Union Grant Funding.
