Titus Andarnicus: A Sock Puppet Play
April 13 @ 5:00 am - 11:00 pm
The Canon Shakespeare Company is proud to present its online, filmed production of “Titus Andarnicus,” a darkly comedic, 90-minute sock puppet version of Shakespeare’s revenge play, “Titus Andronicus.” Access is available by giving offering a donation of any size and including “Titus Andarnicus” in the payment description, after which viewers will receive a link to watch the performance.
Set in the Roman empire, “Titus Andarnicus” follows patriarch Titus as he returns home from successfully conquering the Goths. While he struggles to stay out of Roman political maneuverings, he is unaware that the Queen of the Goths — with the help of her lover, Aaron the Wool — will use whatever means necessary to seek revenge.
“Titus Andarnicus” features five actors across three states playing all the parts, filming scenes from their homes. The finished product is composed of those scenes, edited and set against backdrops drawn by the four-year-old daughter of one of the performers.
