Titus Andronicus (4 stars)

This article is from 2008.

The blood and guts-strewn storyline of Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus is executed here with real flair. Condensing its weighty narrative to a tightly-wound 75 minutes, the play’s themes of rape, murder and race are laid bare in all their savage glory. Helped by some riveting performances and innovative staging, the piece hurtles along to its brutal climax at breakneck speed – perhaps a little too quickly for some.
