The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’s most bloody play, Titus Andronicus, broadcast live at the Torch from the RSC
“A terrific cast give a masterclass in power and paranoia in this tremendous modern-day revival of Shakespeare’s tale of revenge” – The Guardian ****
“It’s a rare and delicious treat to find oneself gripped and thrilled and flinching afresh at the impact of the violence in a production of Shakespeare.” – The Evening Standard *****
“Cerebral, contemporary and at times horrific take on one of Shakespeare’s earliest, messiest play” – The Stage ****
Cinema audiences in Milford Haven will be able to experience the best in live theatre with the The Royal Shakespeare Company’s live broadcast of Titus Andronicus, 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).
The Royal Shakespeare Company creates theatre at its best, made in Stratford-upon-Avon and shared around the world.
