William Shakespeare’s tragedy Titus Andronicus is a tale of revenge and horror, just in time for Halloween. A Roman general returns from war against the Goths with a prize: He has captured their Queen. When he slays her son, she vows revenge, and their mutual lust for vengeance leads to madness. Written circa 1588-1593, Titus Andronicus is considered Shakespeare’s bloodiest and bleakest play, about the ability of mankind to call itself civilized while it lusts for murder. Before Game of Thrones, video games and slasher movies, there were revenge plays: The plot contains 14 deaths, a rape (**off-stage, not seen), dismemberments and cannibalism. Due to mature content, violence and blood, this play is not recommended for children. Director Ian Gallanar sets the play in the 1980s, inspired by the edgy films of Quentin Tarantino and David Lynch, with a rock-and-roll soundtrack. Performances October 23 through November 15, 2015, on Thu-Fri-Sat at 8pm and Sat-Sun matinees at 2pm.
Location: Chesapeake Shakespeare Company, 7 South Calvert Street at Redwood Street, Baltimore MD 21202, downtown near the Inner Harbor
