Royal Shakespeare Company Live: Titus Andronicus [12A] approx 180 mins including interval. Wednesday August 9 at 7pm
The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’s most bloody play. Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss, who relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder. Rape, cannibalism and severed body parts fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt society. Shakespeare’s gory revenge tragedy presents us with murder as entertainment, and, as the body count piles up, poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family, class and society. David Troughton takes the title role in a production by Blanche McIntyre.
National Theatre Live: Yerma, Thursday August 31 at 7pm
The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her Olivier and Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s powerful masterpiece. Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her 30s desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax.

La Clemenza Di Tito. LIVE from Glyndebourne, Thursday August 3, at 6pm

Australian tenor Steve Davislim makes his Glyndebourne debut as Tito, with Alice Coote as Vitellia and Kate Lindsey as Sesto.
