Titus Andronicus

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.

This performance will last approximately one hour and 45 minutes with no intermission.

Contains adult content.

Titus Andronicus is performed with supertitles. In addition, an ASL interpreter is available for any performance with two weeks' notice. For more information, contact patronservices [at] krannertcenter.illinois.edu or 217.333.9716.
