Calendar – Theater – Upper Peninsula Shakespeare Company to Present “Titus Andronicus” – Oct. 22

October 19, 2017

Marquette – The Upper Peninsula Shakespeare Festival will present “Titus Andronicus” on
Sunday, October 22 at 7:30 p.m. at the Ore Dock Brewery in Marquette.

The stakes are high in Shakespeare’s bloodiest revenge play, as staged thru the lenses of “contestants” in this game called Society. What do we stand for? Who do we stand with? How do we govern ourselves in a culture whose predilections for violence and domination steer our tactics?

In this hilarious, provoking and sometimes manically terrifying treatment of William Shakespeare’s “Titus Andronicus” are you just here for the party… or are you the next competitor? For more information, contact jamie@upshakes.org, call 734-578-2528. For tickets, go to www.upshakes.org/tickets.
