'When will this fearful slumber have an end?'
Titus Andronicus: The Complete Play in Five Acts
A Shakespeare Recording Society Production
Titus Andronicus is William Shakespeare's harrowing vision of unending vengeance. After defeating the Goths in battle, Titus Andronicus returns to Rome only to be cold-bloodedly deceived and barbarically tormented by his enemies. This sets in motion an unceasing, seemingly unstoppable spiral of horrific violence and retribution. Vibrantly relevant to our times, Titus Andronicus is one of the most haunting of Shakespeare's plays and a powerful listening experience.
