Inspired by Shakespeare’s infamous and bloody Titus, it explores this classic play through the villainized lens of Tamora, Queen of the Goths, who was captured by Titus, and refocuses the story on both the female characters and Titus' own PTSD. It’s set in the lawless Victorian Era of the Florida Everglades where corruption, power, and greed are rampant. Perfect for fans of the original play as well as films like Tarantino’s "Inglourious Basterds" and books like Morrison’s "Beloved."

    An exciting and thoughtful interpretation of Titus Andronicus, full of magic and lyrical flourishes. I would highly recommend this for development!
