GOTH Theatre event

Thursday, February 2, 2023 - 15:00 to 17:00

We warmly invite you to attend this year’s GOTH online drama festival. The event will feature a discussion and viewing of Titus Andronicus (1594), one of Shakespeare’s most debated and controversial plays.

Prior 2nd February, we encourage all participants to watch the Royal Shakespeare Company’s 2017 production via the Drama Online Library. Access to the website is granted with your OU institution credentials. You can find the production by searching ‘Titus Andronicus’ and filtering the content type by ‘video’. Select the ‘Royal Shakespeare Company’ version from the results.

The production has a run-time of 2 hours 52 minutes. For further information about the performance, you’re welcome to watch the associated videos found on the production page. These include an interview with the cast (6 minutes 21 seconds), an interview with the stage director, Blanche McIntyre (4 minutes 10 seconds), and an interview with the illusion designer, Chris Fisher (3 minutes 58 seconds).
