Play description

This is ’the study of a man who fights, for a Rome he does not understand, against a barbaric tribe he does not think worth understanding. When he allows this Rome to form an alliance with these barbarians, they take revenge on him too terrible to contemplate and yet curiously just. Titus is the victim of his own strict code and his own grandeur. In this respect, he is a universal figure and the play is a tract for our times.
No history book contains the general, the emperor, the blackamoor and the barbaric empress who dominate the play.’ (Written by R.E)

‘This play was a smash hit in its day, one of Shakespeare’s earliest successes, dating back to 1593.’

(Both the above extracts are from a 1963 original Birmingham Repertory Theatre Programme of this play.)
