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.”
