Two pairs of tickets to Titus Andronicus, the latest production in the summer season at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, must be won by Banbury Guardian readers this week.
The play is the third of this summer season of Shakespeare’s Rome plays. Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra are already being enjoyed by thousands of visitors to Stratford.
Titus Andronicus, directed by Blanche McIntyre, has just opened and plays until September 2. Coriolanus, the fourth and last in the Rome sequence follows in September.
Titus Andronicus is renowned for being Shakespeare’s goriest revenge tragedy, as the body count piles up and blood fills the stage, the play poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family, class and the morality of revenge.
