The Roman general, Titus Andronicus, returns to a hero’s welcome after defeating the Goths in a ten-year campaign. Among his captives are the Queen of the Goths, Tamora, and her three sons, Alarbus, Demetrius and Chiron. Also accompanying her is her boyfriend, Aaron, a Moor. They are not happy.
Titus has lost many sons in the war. He is not happy.
Suffice to say, this play is filled with classic Roman acts of revenge between Titus and his enemy, Tamora – each one tries to top the other, and it gets pretty gory!
We have gone 11 years without going near this play for that very reason. Our solution is to make it a Musical, satirizing and holding up a mirror to that society and to the unspeakable behavior of the main characters.
We are in an era where, for many of us, nothing feels darker than real life – so we are going to bathe this play about warped, twisted and corrupt leadership in a tub of satire and song.
