ODU Rep and Warehouse of Theatre Produce Shakespeare's “Titus Andronicus”

William Shakespeare's earliest tragedy, "Titus Andronicus," a collaboration of ODU Rep and the local stage company Warehouse of Theatre, will begin a nearly two-week run at Old Dominion University's Goode Theatre on April 6.

The production is under the direction of Lee Smith and Katherine Hammond.

Shakespeare's unsettling, visually stunning blackly comic revenge tragedy has provoked shock, contempt and uneasy laughter since its premiere. It thumps with the passionate heartbeat of the young Bard. Chaotic and bloody, "Titus Andronicus" excites and horrifies in its tale of ultimate power leading to ultimate revenge.

"Titus Andronicus" opens Wednesday, April 6th at 7:30 p.m. in the Goode Theatre (Monarch Way and 46th St.). Other performances are April 7-9, 14 and 17 at 7:30 p.m. and April 15 at 4 p.m.

Tickets may be purchased at ODUArtsTix.com or at the box office (757-683-5305) Monday-Friday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The production is in conjunction with "Shakespeare 400 Years After: A Public Event" running April 13-20 on the ODU campus and throughout Hampton Roads. It is a weeklong series of theatre, dance, music, art and film, as well as an international conference.
