The play is set during the latter days of the Roman Empire and tells the fictional story of Titus, a general in the Roman army, who is engaged in a cycle of revenge with Tamora, Queen of the Goths. It is Shakespeare's bloodiest and most violent work and traditionally was one of his least respected plays. Although it was extremely popular in its day, by the later seventeenth century it had fallen out of favour. In the Victorian era, it was disapproved of primarily because of what was considered to be a distasteful use of graphic violence, but from around the middle of the twentieth century its reputation began to improve.

<![CDATA[Hudson Warehouse: Titus Andronicus]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/08/22/hudson-warehouse-presents-titus-andronicus http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/08/22/hudson-warehouse-presents-titus-andronicus Date: August 22, 2015

The play is set during the latter days of the Roman Empire and tells the fictional story of Titus, a general in the Roman army, who is engaged in a cycle of revenge with Tamora, Queen of the Goths. It is Shakespeare's bloodiest and most violent work and traditionally was one of his least respected plays. Although it was extremely popular in its day, by the later seventeenth century it had fallen out of favour. In the Victorian era, it was disapproved of primarily because of what was considered to be a distasteful use of graphic violence, but from around the middle of the twentieth century its reputation began to improve.

Start time: 6:30 pm

In the Shakespearean fairytale Cymbeline, Princess Imogen’s fidelity is put to the royal test when her disapproving father banishes her soul mate.
