The Rogue Ensemble presents a live, socially distanced adaptation of Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus.
About this Event
Hot on the heels of their smash hit touring production of AS YOU LIKE IT, the newly-minted Rogue Ensemble Theatre Company is set to tackle Shakespeare's most violent tragedy, TITUS ANDRONICUS. Adapted by Rogue Ensemble Artistic Director Christine Reisig and directed by Joey Nasta, this new socially-distant production reimagines the Bard's bloodiest tale as a macabre, ghostly requiem on the horror of revenge.
Performed at the steps of General Ulysses S. Grant's tomb, TITUS channels a corrupt, crumbling republic haunted by the ghosts of its failed caretakers. As the violent demon of revenge wreaks havoc in Rome, characters slowly forget themselves, changing from face to face until the carnage leaves little to be recognized.
