Titus Andronicus

Tripped Theatre return for their third year at the Fringe, with a stripped back version of Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus at Space @ Venue 45. This bloody revenge tragedy is sure to grip you from the onset with this shocking adaptation. The production plays with gender to put a more contemporary spin on an old classic and will force you to love, hate and even empathise with the wide range of fatally flawed characters it presents.

Titus, fresh from a war zone, finds himself thrust into the forefront of society as a damaged and reluctant celebrity, but all is not well as he is determined to seek revenge. Titus envelops himself and his enemies into a dark descent into madness as we learn that no one is safe. This whirlwind of a production proves that this tragedy is more that it initially seems, showing not just black and white, but all the shades in between.
