TITUS ANDRONICUS runs Oct. 20-Nov. 11

Presented by Cincinnati Shakespeare Company
Oct. 20-Nov. 11

Reviews: Enquirer | CityBeat |

Directed by Jeremy Dubin

Cast: Darnell Benjamin as Aaron the Moor, Charlie Cromer as Bassianus, Travis Emery as Chiron, Jessie Wray Goodman as Martius, nurse, goth; Justin McCombs* as Saturninus, Travis McElroy as Lucius, Miranda McGee as Tamora, Sam Rabinovitz as Quintus, senator, chief goth; Maggie Lou Rader as Lavinia, Paul Riopelle* as Marcus Andronicus, Nicholas Rose* as Titus Andronicus, Zach Schute as Demetrius & Augustus Corder as Mutius, boy

One of the bloodiest plays in the canon, Titus Andronicus is full to the brim with revenge, murder, betrayal and crimes most atrocious. Titus Andronicus evokes startling, gruesome and tragic imagery as the mighty Roman general Titus faces off with his mortal enemy, Tamora, Queen of the Goths. Titus and Tamora, in a spiral of bloody revenge, trade murder for hideous murder, each more brutal than the last.
