    I love what this does with the source material and what this is as a play exclusive of that text! There is a lot that is "Shakespeare-esque" here--the heightened world of tragedy, a uniquely lyrical and distinct sense of language--but Goldfinger really explodes the story and recenters the narrative in a way that picks up on threads that are too neglected in the "TItus Andronicus." She manages to explore trauma, PTSD, toxic/patriarchal structures and other issues that feel relevant to this world, the original text, and the modern world. What a bold, darkly humorous, and rich theatrical realm.

    Riveting; I was utterly transfixed by this gory, gorgeous play. Goldfinger highlights the mental casualties of war and violence while blurring the lines between who is right and who is wrong in this conflict. I would love to see this play in production.

    This play is beautifully raw and invigorating. I felt for both the Queen and Titus, and it was set is time and place just as chaotic as the original story. The Bard would be very proud!

    Jacqueline Goldfinger’s “Queen of the Goths” is inspired by “Titus Andronicus” and set in Florida in the late 1800s. This chaotic setting provide the perfect backdrop for this story which is relevant to today’s audiences. The language is strong, raw, and riveting. Jacqueline Is a brilliant playwright who creates unique worlds for her audiences. This play is no exception. Cannot wait to see how this play develops.

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