Titus AndronicusTITUS ANDRONICUS (15)
Wednesday 5 August at 7pm at QUAD
Running time 186 mins (including 15 min interval)

Returning to Rome from a war against the Goths, the general Titus Andronicus brings with him the queen Tamora and her three sons as prisoners of war and initiates a terrible cycle of mutilation, rape and murder. And all the while, at the centre of the nightmare, there moves the villainous, self-delighting Aaron. Grotesquely violent and daringly experimental, was the smash hit of Shakespeare’s early career. Lucy Bailey’s spectacular production caused a stir throughout the UK media and resulted in audience members fainting in the stalls

Julius CaesarJULIUS CAESAR (12A)
Wednesday 12 August at 7pm at QUAD
Running time 167 mins (including 15mins interval)

When Caesar returns to Rome from the wars a virtual dictator, Brutus and his republican friends resolve that his ambition must be curbed – which in Rome can mean only one thing: the great general must be assassinated. Shakespeare’s tense drama of high politics reveals the emotional currents that flow between men in power with themes that still resonate today. This sell out production employed Renaissance costumes and staging, and Dominic Dromgoole’s impassioned interpretation was a hit with critics

Antony and CleopatraANTONY AND CLEOPATRA (12A)
Wednesday 19 August at 7pm at QUAD
Running time 179 mins (including 15 mins interval)

Cleopatra, the alluring and fascinatingly ambiguous Queen of Egypt, has bewitched the great Mark Antony, soldier, campaigner and now one of the three rulers of the Roman Empire. The third of the Roman Tragedies in this season, Anthony & Cleopatra picks up Antony’s story many years after Julius Caesar. Shakespeare’s greatest exploration of the conflicting claims of sex and power, all expressed in a tragic poetry of breath-taking beauty and magnificence

The Comedy of ErrorsTHE COMEDY OF ERRORS (PG)
Wednesday 2 September at 7pm at QUAD
Running time 147 mins (including 15 min interval)

Take one pair of estranged twin brothers (both called Antipholus), and one pair of estranged twin servants (both called Dromio), keep them in ignorance of each other and throw them into a city with a reputation for sorcery, and you have all the ingredients for theatrical chaos. The sell out production employed authentic Renaissance costumes and staging and has ‘more hilarious anarchy than you can shake a fish, cat or identity confused servant at.’ (London Theatre Guide)
