Enjoy this staged reading of one of Shakespeare's early tragedies. Funded by the Friends of the Wilmette Public Library.

“I am Revenge, sent from th’infernal kingdom
To ease the gnawing vulture of thy mind
By working wreakful vengeance on thy foes”

Considered to be Shakespeare’s very first tragedy and by far his most violent, Titus Andronicus may have been co-authored with George Peale.  It is representative of the revenge tragedy genre, popular at the time.  Titus, a victorious roman general, returns from the war with the enemy in tow.  He publicly refuses to show mercy to his fallen foe, Tamora Queen of the Goths, and executes her son. Unexpectedly, Tamora is elevated to empress of Rome, locking the two in a titan’s battle for justice. The drama may have delighted and at the same time horrified Elizabethan audiences by its pervasive violence throughout.  Is there ever a point in this play where justice is finally, truly served?  Or is the play caught in an endless loop of retribution?  And if the later, is loss of humanity the end result or is it just gory spectacle?  Join us and find out.  For mature audiences only.
