About this show

Court Theatre presents William Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus, adapted and directed by Charles Newell. Roman general Titus Andronicus returns home in triumph, but with a perilous war trophy -- Tamora, queen of the Goths. Her presence in Rome sets in motion a cycle of envy and vengeance that ensnares slaves and emperors alike. Artistic Director Charles Newell adapts and directs Shakespeare's riveting tale of jealousy and revenge creating a contemporary setting that lends depth and emotional significance to the horrific cycle of violence that defines the world of Titus Andronicus. The new adaptation is a modern saga of privilege and entitlement brimming with aggression that is just a facade . . . or is it?
