This Halloween, Director Mikey Mulhearn and Intimacy/Fight Director Celina Surniak transform the space beneath EverBar into an arena of death. Laced with opaque tarp, horrific acts of violence, and inspired by classic Hollywood horror films- Shakespeare on the Deck brings you closer than ever to one of the Bard’s most experimental works.
Returning triumphantly to Rome, general Titus Andronicus, brings with him the Goth Queen Tamora and her three sons as prisoners of war. Sacrificing the eldest Goth son to appease the ghosts of his fallen own; his refusal to accept the title of emperor; and his blatant disregard for Tamora’s pleas of mercy- Titus sets into motion a horrific cycle of mutilation, rape, and murder.
The ensemble will be helmed by Shah Granville in the titular role of “Titus,” Mary Carrig as “Marcus” and Keaton Shyler as “Tamora.” Joining them are Emily Newsome as “Demetrius,” Alex Wood as “Chiron,” Jahel Caldera as “Aaron,” Kelsey Risher as “Saturninus,” Nima Rad as “Lavinia,” Kodi Jackman as “Lucius,” Nick Molari as “Bassianus/Nurse/Goth,” Paige Nelson as “Alarabus/Martius/Emilius,” Brandon Doyle as “Quintus/Young Lucius,” and Autumn McKinney-Brooks as “Mutius/Goth/Roman.”
The production team includes Mikey Mulhearn (Director/Adaptor), Celina Surniak (Fight/Intimacy Coordinator), Jessica Gardner (Casting), Alec De Kervor (Original Music), Katherine Landreth (Assistant Director/Verse Coach), Katherine Landreth and Libby Wahlmeier (Costume Coordinators), and Jessica Morrison (Stage Manager)
