Titus Andronicus

Date: 11 Jul 2019

Bell Shakespeare presents the gruesome revenge tragedy Titus Andronicus in a new production directed by Adena Jacobs (Belvoir’s Wizard of Oz and English National Opera’s Salome) and featuring Jane Montgomery Griffiths (MTC’s Macbeth) as Titus Andronicus.

This is the first time the Company has programmed this bloody tale of two families locked in a violent cycle of chaos and bloody vengeance.

Titus Andronicus is about a society unable to process its trauma,” says Jacobs. “A society so dehumanised that it derives pleasure through bodily punishment and creates a spectacle of its victims and perpetrators.

Titus Andronicus is a nightmare — a grotesque examination of reciprocal violence and histories doomed to repeat themselves.”
