Get inside the beating heart of Shakespeare’s first and most deadly revenge tragedy Titus Andronicus, performed in the Globe’s intimate, indoor Sam Wanamaker Playhouse for the first time.
After a brutal 10-year battle, honoured Roman general Titus Andronicus embarks on an era of bloodshed when he refuses to show mercy to the eldest son of Tamora, Queen of the Goths. Betrayed by his nation, and with his family in ruins, Titus seeks justice the only way he knows how – tooth for tooth and limb for limb.
As the candles burn and the bodies pile up, director Jude Christian (Dark Night of the Soul, Nanjing, Globe) explores the macabre madness that takes us to the edge of humanity.
‘Vengeance is in my heart, death in my hand,
Blood and revenge are hammering in my head.’
– Act II, scene 3
