Synopsis


SATELLITE LIVE: BROADCASTING EVENTS IN HD VIA SATELLITE FROM AROUND THE WORLD...


The Royal Shakespeare Company | by William Shakespeare | £13.50 Full (£11.50 Concession) | This is a recorded broadcast of a live performance at Stratford-upon-Avon on the 9th of August.

The performance of Titus Andronicus has been issued a 15 rating by the British Board of Film Classification for violent scenes.

The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’s most bloody play.

Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss, who relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder. Rape, cannibalism and severed body parts fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt society.

Shakespeare’s gory revenge tragedy presents us with murder as entertainment, and, as the body count piles up, poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family, class and society.

Blanche McIntyre returns to the RSC to direct Shakespeare’s brutal revenge tragedy after her debut directing The Two Noble Kinsmen (2016).
