|A play by William Shakespeare never to
At a production at the Globe Theatre in
London a few years ago, so overwhelming and powerful was the show, that
at many performances people in the audience fainted.
The play that was Shakespeare's most popular
in his lifetime but seldom done since.
A Play with new political power and meaning.
A play that challenges the very rituals
and beliefs of our lives.
A play about family, revenge, war, religion,
madness and love.
Off The Wall Theatre
It's as if Quentin Tarentino
wrote his version of King Lear!
Gutzman directed and stared as
Titus in this amazing,
shocking, Shakespearean nightmare.
With a cast
Jeremy C. Welter as his loyal son
Maura Atwood as Lavinia,
ravaged and mutilated daughter of Titus;
Jeff Grygny as his politician brother;
Shayne Steliga as
Aaron the Moore, a sensual, sexual man-monster;
Laura Monagle as Tamora, Queen
of the Goths a woman of unbridled ambition;
Nathan Danzer and Ben Braunas
her two sadistic, morally twisted sons;
James Strange and J.J. Gatesman
as the two brothers fighting to take over the Roman Empire;
James Donaldson, Jim Feeley, Mark Ninneman,
Thomas Welcenbach, Ava Danzer, Sandy Lewis, Barbara Weber, Barbara Zaferos,
Roger Uscila, Lawrence J. Lukasavage.
This is the play you have heard about...where
a mother is served a dinner of her own sons!
This is the play where limbs get lopped
and madness reigns.
This is the play that sows the seeds for
many later Shakespearean masterpieces.
With technical direction by David Roper,
and many seats removed, the tiny Off The Wall Theatre became
even more intimate and in this case riveting!
