Savage and sublime, brutal and beautiful, this blackly comic revenge story is told in extremes. General Titus Andronicus returns victorious from battle with the prisoners Queen Tamora, her lover, and her sons. Despite Tamora’s pleadings, Titus hands over her eldest son for sacrifice and sets in motion a cycle of violence that races to a vicious conclusion. Yet among the bloodshed are moments of profound humanity in the anguish and loss felt by both families, illuminating the senselessness of “eye for an eye” retribution.
