Description

Titus Redux tells the tale of a warrior who returns home after five tours of duty in Afghanistan to bury his eldest son. Resolving to retire from a lifetime of killing on behalf of his country, he quickly discovers that the horrors of war have followed him home.

John Farmanesh-Bocca, still glowing from last summer’s critically triumphant “physical theatre” staging of Pericles Redux at the Kirk Douglas Theater, is muscling up another work of the Bard with co-producers Circus Theatricals (CT). Titus Redux, a guest production at Culver City’s Kirk Douglas Theatre. features CT founder Jack Stehlin (from Showtime’s Weeds) in the title role. SAG Award-winner Brenda Strong (series regular narrator voice of ABC’s Desperate Housewives), along with three-time daytime Emmy winner Margeaux J. London also star.
