Titus Andronicus

​Blanche McIntyre returns to direct Shakespeare’s brutal revenge tragedy, as the decay of Rome reaches violent depths.
The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’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.
Blanche McIntyre returns to the RSC after her debut directing The Two Noble Kinsmen (2016).
​​​Wednesday 9th August 2017. Doors Open 6:15pm. Performance 7:00pm. 
Tickets Prices: Luxury Seat £15.00 / Sofa for Two £30.00 / Standard Seat £13.75 / Concession £12.00

Coriolanus

 A full-throttle war play that revels in the sweat of the battlefield, Coriolanus transports us back to the emergence of the republic of Rome.
Caius Martius Coriolanus is a fearless soldier but a reluctant leader. His ambitious mother attempts to carve him a path to political power, but he struggles to change his nature and do what is required to achieve greatness. In this new city state struggling to find its feet, where the gap between rich and poor is widening every day, Coriolanus must decide who he really is and where his allegiances lie.
Rome Season Director, Angus Jackson, completes our collection of Shakespeare’s Roman plays with a visceral production which sees Sope Dirisu (One Night in Miami, Donmar Warehouse, 2016) take on the title role.
​​​Wednesday 11th August 2017. Doors Open 6:15pm. Performance 7:00pm. 
Tickets Prices: Luxury Seat £15.00 / Sofa for Two £30.00 / Standard Seat £13.75 / Concession £12.00
