"Ten thousand worse than ever yet I did
Would I perform, if I might have my will.
If one good deed in all my life I did,
I do repent it from my very soul."

Having subdued the Goths, conquering hero Titus Andronicus returns to Rome to bury his sons, with Gothic Queen Tamora and her retinue as captives. Titus sacrifices Tamora’s eldest son to the gods and helps Saturninus become the new Roman emperor. But when Saturninus chooses Tamora as his wife, an unstoppable wave of bloody revenge is unleashed...
Black humour and revenge mark a production where numerous characters face a bloody and horrific death. Shakespeare’s revenge tragedy is an intense, primal work with passages of great poetry. As the excesses and ambiguities of family relationships and the abuse of power take hold, Trevor Peacock, in the lead role, delivers a dominating and moving performance.
