'Top 10 pick at the Space' Fringe Review

Set deep inside British extremist, skinhead culture, Roman warriors are unapologetically replaced with National Front political soldiers and their armour switched for military style shaved heads, combat boots, drugs and knives.

In the midst of a vicious turf war on the streets of London, Titus’ son is murdered by Alarbus, the son of a powerful Irish immigrant matriarch. The murder sparks into action an uncontrollable and catastrophic cycle of violent and bloody revenge. As the aggression rapidly escalates, Titus is pushed to the brink of insanity, culminating in a ferocious and unforgiving climax.

In a world where survival is balancing on a knife edge, just how strong are the restraints which hold us back from committing the most heinous monstrosities in the name of self-preservation?

Doused in 80’s politics, music, fashion and culture, ‘Titus Andronicus’ is an exciting and engaging explosion of corrupt humanity at its most extreme - not for the faint of heart!
