This is England meets Shakespeare in this gritty and aggressive take on one of his bloodiest plays; Titus Andronicus.

Shakespeare’s terrifying tale of war, revenge, honour and rivalry is transported into the underbelly of 1980s London. Set deep inside English extremist skinhead culture, Roman Warriors are replaced with National Front Political Soldiers, their armour exchanged for military style shaved heads, combat boots, drugs and knives.

In the midst of a vicious turf war on the streets of North London, Titus’ son is murdered by Alarbus, the son of a powerful irish immigrant matriarch; the murder sparks into action an uncontrollable and catastrophic cycle of violent and bloody revenge. As the aggression rapidly escalates, Titus is pushed to the brink of insanity, culminating in a ferocious and unforgiving climax.

In a society where survival balances on a knife edge, just how strong are the restraints holding us back from committing the most heinous of monstrosities in the name of self preservation?

Coming to the Arcola Theatre after a critically acclaimed, sell out run at this years Edinburgh Fringe, Titus Andronicus is an exciting and engaging explosion of corrupt humanity at its most extreme – not for the faint of heart!
