Springs Ensemble Theatre (SET) explores a different facet of William Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus with an all-female cast. Titus Andronicus, adapted by SET ensemble member and executive producer Jonathan Margheim, is Shakespeare’s earliest tragedy and widely acknowledged as his most violent play. The production offers an opportunity for some of Colorado Springs’ most talented actors to dominate the SET stage, led by lauded local performer Amy Brooks as the war-weary Titus. Titus Andronicus (Brooks) returns from a decade-long war victorious, but with twenty-one dead sons. To appease their ghosts, he sacrifices the son of his long-time enemy, Tamora, Queen of the Goths (SET member Crystal Carter). She vows revenge and the resulting spiral of violence threatens the fabric of Rome and exposes just how far two people will go to defend their families. (Contains Adult Content.)
