      A TRAGEDIE

      In 1978, the BBC set itself the task of filming all of William Shakespeare’s plays for television. The resulting productions, renowned for their loyalty to the text, utilised the best theatrical and television directors and brought great performances from leading contemporary actors.

      “Ten thousand worse than ever yet I did
      Would I perform, if I might have my will,
      If one good deed in all my life I did,
      I do repent it from my very soul.”

      Having subdued the Goths, conquering hero Titus Andronicus returns to Rome to bury his sons, with Gothic Queen Tamora and her retinue as captives. Titus sacrifices Tamora’s eldest son to the gods and helps Saturninus become the new Roman emperor. But when Saturninus chooses Tamora as his wife, an unstoppable wave of bloody revenge is unleashed . . .

      Black humour and revenge mark a production where numerous characters face a bloody and horrific death. Shakespeare’s revenge tragedy is an intense, primal work with passages of great poetry. As the excesses and ambiguities of family relationships and the abuse of power take hold, Trevor Peacock, in the lead role, delivers a dominating and moving performance.

      ABOUT TITUS ANDRONICUS

      This, the most gory of all of the Bard’s works is such a blood-fest that it isn’t for the faint hearted. For anyone with any imagination or the smallest spark of humanity not to be sickened by the portrayal of man at his most bestial ~ It is well spoken, visually arresting it exerts an iron grip on your consciousness and perhaps your dreams . . . Shakespeare’s first, most sensation-packed tragedy appeared in print in 1594, and a performance record dating from January of that year appears to indicate that this was then a new play, but according to some sources it had been acted by three companies one of which was bankrupt by the summer of 1593; and the play’s style too, suggests that it was written earlier . . .
