Krannert Center Events: November 2019: Titus Andronicus

Event Details

By William Shakespeare
Adapted by Andrea Stevens
Robert G. Anderson, director

Bloody, devastating, and darkly comic, Titus Andronicus was one of Shakespeare’s earliest commercial successes—and yet critics have sometimes dismissed the tragedy as a failure or as somehow “unShakespearean” for its abrupt tonal shifts and extreme violence, in particular its depiction of the rape and mutilation of its central female character. Loosely inspired by Shakespearean “original practices,” this streamlined and intimate production confronts the ethical challenges of staging this play for contemporary audiences.
