Ore Dock to host ‘Titus Andronicus’
MARQUETTE — The Upper Peninsula Shakespeare Festival presents: “Titus Andronicus” at the Ore Dock Brewing Co. at 7 p.m. Sunday, and Oct. 18, 22, 25 and 29.
The stakes are high in Shakespeare’s bloodiest revenge play, as staged through the lenses of “contestants” in this game called society.
What do we stand for? Who do we stand with? How do we govern ourselves in a culture whose predilections for violence and domination steer our tactics?
In this hilarious, provoking and sometimes manically terrifying treatment of William Shakespeare’s “Titus Andronicus” asks: are you just here for the party … or are you the next competitor?
