Clear Creek Community Theatre continues its “Shakespeare in the Summer” series with a modern retelling of Titus Andronicus. The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in the Bard of Avon's most bloody play./
Returning from 40 years at war with the Goths, the Roman general Titus Andronicus executes the eldest son of Tamora, Queen of the Goths, setting off a long chain of revenge, cruelty, and murder.
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, race and society.
Due to the mature subject matter children under 16 should be accompanied by an adult.
Director Robert Leslie Meek has previously directed productions of Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, The Tempest, Veronica’s Room and the Haunting of Hill House at CCCT.
