The full cast list for our Headgate Theatre Production of Titus Andronicus, scheduled to be performed in May 2022, is now confirmed.
Andrew Hodgson, director, was absolutely delighted at the number of people who auditioned for this rarely performed Shakespeare play, which has been freely adapted for a modern audience.
Nevertheless production will still contain violence and scenes that some people may find distressing. It is not suitable for anyone under 16.
