Titus Andronicus is one of Shakespeare's earliest and bloodiest plays. First appearing in 1593, Titus is one of the less frequently performed plays but my bar one of the most fascinating to me. The plot revolves around the Roman general Titus who has returned after victory over the Goths, bearing with him their queen Tamora as a prisoner. The Roman citizens wish to make him emperor but he defers to the eldest son of the late emperor, Saturninus. Saturninus decides to wed Tamora and it's pretty much all down hill from there.
