"Then which way shall I find Revenge's cave?
For these two heads do seem to speak to me."
An exhausted general returns to Rome to bury his dead sons. Titus Andronicus sparks a bloodbath in the high-strung state by slaughtering the son of his dangerous prisoner, Tamora - a captured wolf breaking out of her cage with all the elegance and calm of a deadly spider.
The scenes that follow explode through a devastating machine of vengeance, told in surging poetry and stark, traumatic visions. We see the maddening zeals of lust and revenge as two sides of a self-spinning coin, and that any person will become an animal when hunted.
