Titus Andronicus

Tue 20th – Fri 23rd Nov 2012


“Shakespeare's gory classic brought to life in post-Vietnam America. Hippies versus War vets. Bring it on.”





CABAL Student Productions


1968. The revolution has failed. Its leaders lie scattered, at the mercy of the government they were fighting to destroy.

But perhaps all is not lost. The war is far from over. In a city where a silver tongue and a flinty heart can make a man President, enmity will never die. Opportunities for revenge flourish, and virtue is torn down, deflowered, and desecrated. Rome is but a wilderness of tigers…

In Week 7 of Michaelmas Term 2012, Cabal Student Productions brings one of Shakespeare’s most controversial plays to the stage. Violent and cruel, Titus Andronicus challenges a modern audience like no other. St Anthony’s Drama Society, in association with Trinity Players, are reinvigorating the play in a new production, set in Washington D.C. following the failure of the radical summer of 1968. The US elite bombastically celebrate their victory over an upstart, godless, un-American movement. But their complacency is unjustified. The radicals are rising again. With two cultures, two worldviews struggling for primacy, a savage battle for survival is at hand. In the age of Richard Nixon, Jimi Hendrix, and the Vietnam War, the stage is set for the most brutal war of all, and no-one is playing by the rules.
