Shakespeare’s bloodiest play, “Titus Andronicus” spills onto the stage at Cincy Shakes this Halloween season

Written by

It’s the Bard’s most gruesome and shocking play set in a fantastical Steampunk world, on stage October 11-November 2, 2019.

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company continues its 2019-2020 Season with William Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus featuring a 15-person cast. This Halloween season, murder, mayhem, and mutilation abound, as Shakespeare’s bloodiest play descends on the CSC stage. Roman general Titus Andronicus returns victorious from 10 years of war, his archnemesis Tamora Queen of the Goths in tow and in chains. But when Rome’s rash and impetuous new Emperor decides not only to free her, but to marry her and make her his queen, she embarks upon a remorseless course of revenge. As she and Titus engage in an escalating cycle of violence and vengeance, the body count rises, and Rome threatens to fall.
