The Unmaking of Man. Rome 1395. Fresh off a victory against the Goths, General Titus is thrust into the spotlight as Rome finds itself in need of a new emperor. Betrayal, villainy and chaos reign supreme as we see the unmaking of the once honorable and militant Titus. Revenge is a dish best served…with wine.

Titus Andronicus is a play that challenges us to confront the darkest corners of the human psyche, where passions run wild and the lines between justice and vengeance blur.
After cutting our teeth in outdoor drama, we’re excited to harken back to our roots and bring Shakespeare to live audiences in this beautiful outdoor setting. In our shortened interpretation of this show, we aimed to explore the choices we make as humans, the cyclical nature of violence, and the tragic consequences it begets. Hoping to bring you a louder, faster, bloodier version of this show.
We extend our deepest gratitude to the cast and crew who have dedicated their time and energy to bring this production to life. This ensemble’s passion, commitment, and sense of play have been instrumental in realizing our vision. We are truly proud of their work.
Finally, we would like to express our gratitude to you, our audience. We can’t wait for you to join us on this journey and to engage in the conversations and reflections that this show provokes. Sit back, relax, have a glass of wine, and enjoy dinner!
Rob Aronowitz & Emily Asbury
