★★★★ "a breathtaking 21st-century take on one of the most difficult plays in the Shakespeare canon" The Scotsman
★★★★ "radical reboot of what is probably Shakespeare's bloodiest tragedy...brought stunningly to life by director and designer Stewart Laing" The Herald

Rome, a restaurant.
Titus Andronicus returns to Rome from fighting the war – limping, exhausted, but victorious (for now). His soldiers swap their army uniforms for those of the kitchen, and the work begins to re-open for business.
Titus runs the restaurant with regimental precision. Rome is famous for it. But the politics back home haven’t gone away, and into the mix Titus has brought back a trophy of war – Tamora, the enemy leader.
The tables are set...
TITUS ANDRONICUS is infamous as Shakespeare’s bloodiest tragedy – and is directed and designed for the Rep by Stewart Laing, one of Scotland’s most exciting theatre artists.
Dundee Rep Ensemble is proud and excited to present a season of work all linked by a common theme – Revenge!
A new version of the great Spanish classic Blood Wedding by Lorca...
Shakespeare’s thrilling early tragedy Titus Andronicus...
And a dramatisation of the classic Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
