Gesa Power House Theatre will screen the current Royal Shakespeare Company production of “Titus Andronicus” on Wednesday, September 13 at 6:00 p.m. This production is filmed live in Stratford-Upon-Avon and rebroadcast internationally to select screens.
The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’s most bloody play. Blanche McIntyre returns to the RSC to direct Shakespeare’s brutal revenge tragedy after her debut directing “The Two Noble Kinsmen” (2016).
Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss, who relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder. Rape, cannibalism and severed body parts fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt society.
Shakespeare’s gory revenge tragedy presents us with murder as entertainment, and, as the body count piles up, poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family, class and society. This production contains smoke effects, gunshots, sexual content, with violent and potentially distressing scenes.
Recommended for ages 18 and up.
Reserved seating tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. This screening lasts approximately 3 hours 30 minutes, including an on-screen introduction and an intermission. Beer, wine, and snacks will be available for purchase. RSVP on Facebook
