The live streamed reading of Shakespeare’s play will take place on the 22nd April at 7pm through Youtube.
Full casting has now been announced for The Show Must Go Online’s upcoming live streamed reading of Titus Andronicus.
Rob Myles will direct Tiffany Abercrombie (Lavinia), Clark Alexander (Martius/Attendant), Jack Baldwin (Lucius), Michael Bertenshaw (Titus Andronicus), Mark Holden (Aaron), Khuyen Le (Bassianus), Wayne Lee (Saturninus), Joanna Lucas (Quintus/ Third Goth), Tricia Mancuso Parks (Tamora), Emily Millwood (Young Lucius), Shamiso Mushambi (Aemilius), Matthew Rhodes (Chiron), Charles Sloboda-Bolton (Demetrius), and Julia Walker Wyson (Marcus Andronicus). The ensemble consists of Toni Benedetti-Martin, Natalie Harper, Ross Martin, and Sophie Max, with Mark Hammersley and Tamara Ritthaler as swings.
To also celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday, The Show must Go Online is also creating online guides for viewers to dress up like the characters from the show at home, make a themed cocktail, or bake a macabre pasty to eat along with Tamora and the rest in the final banquet. For more information on the party theme, please visit Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
There is also a content warning in place as Titus Andronicus contains violence and scenes that may be upsetting – so it is not suitable for children. The distressing content includes mutilation, racism and references to sexual violence.
