by William Shakespeare
Could Shakespeare’s first tragedy be a cautionary tale for our political times?
General Titus Andronicus returns victorious from battle with the prisoners Queen Tamora, her lover, and her sons. Despite Tamora’s pleadings, Titus hands over her eldest son for sacrifice, setting off a cycle of violence that races to a vicious conclusion. While it appears to be a saga of power and retribution, Titus is really about the violence that erupts when a government goes awry, isolated from the citizens it once served. Set in the future, Theatricum’s bold staging sparks a flame of caution with a flicker of hope.
