RSC Live: Titus Andronicus

Bust of man covered in red paint representing blood


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 society.  Shakespeare's gory revenge tragedy presents us with murder as entertainment, and, as the body count mounts up poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family class and society.

Blanche MacIntyre returns to the RSC to direct Shakespeare's brutal revenge tragedy after her debut directing the Two Noble Kinsmen (2016).
