Thur 17th August 2017 – Titus Andronicus (RSC live streaming)
Titus Andronicus – William Shakespeare
Royal Shakespeare Company: Rome Season broadcast live via satellite from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon.
The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’s most bloody play.
Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss, who relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder.
Rape, cannibalism and severed body parts fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt society.
Shakespeare’s gory revenge tragedy presents us with murder as entertainment, and, as the body count
piles up, poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family, class and society.
Blanche McIntyre returns to the RSC to direct Shakespeare’s brutal revenge tragedy after her debut
directing The Two Noble Kinsmen (2016).
