ARLINGTON, VA. - Revenge is a dish best served silent. Lucky number 13 in the “Wordless Shakespeare” series, Founding Artistic Director Paata Tsikurishvili sinks his teeth into this revenge-driven tragedy and tells the bloody tale of Titus and Tamora with a fiery passion, energy, and vengeance. “Titus Andronicus” is running from now through May 27 at Synetic Theater in Arlington.

Director Tsikurishvili said “Titus Andronicus” is an underrated play, and it doesn't get half the attention it should. “It has everything in it from Shakespeare's canon,” he said, “Including intrigue, war, romance, action, madness, and family drama. Because it is one of Shakespeare’s earlier plays, it has a fascinating blueprint of a lot of his plays that came after.”

He said they were trying “to expose the beating heart of Shakespeare’s work. By adapting the play in a purely visual manner, we allow the audience to interpret and customize it and come up with their own interpretations,” he said.
