Amazing production. Why don't we see this play produced more often? Blood and sex galore! bring warm clothes, in case the fog rolls in! Great food and drink for purchase, too. Take BART + the Shakes' shuttle!

Description

For the first time in its 38-year history, Cal Shakes presents Titus Andronicus_, the young Shakespeare’s virtuosic spin on the revenge tragedies popular in his day. Associate Artist James Carpenter will play the title character; Joel Sass (Pericles, Macbeth_) will return to direct. “It’s about a society torn apart, and how its citizens attempt to knit themselves together again,” says Sass. “Titus is one of Shakespeare’s oldest plays, but it is undeniably a play for our time: a sophisticated blend of heart-stopping drama and pitch black humor.”
