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.
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.
Director Robert Meek has previously mounted productions of Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, The Tempest and The Haunting of Hill House at CCCT.
