Titus Andronicus - The Background
William Shakespeare’s first tragedy, Titus Andronicus is believed to be written in collaboration with George Peele somewhere between 1588 and 1593. Set during the late period of the Roman Empire, the story revolves around a Roman Army General Titus who wants to take revenge from Queen of the Goths, Tamora. After defeating the Goths, Andronicus comes back to Rome with Queen Tamora and sacrifices her son in the name of Gods. Later Saturninus, the son of late emperor gets married to Tamora after a betrayal by his brother Bassianus. This was against the plan because his brother runs away with the daughter of Titus, Lavinia, giving rise to a desire for revenge in Saturninus and Tamora against Titus. ,
The vengeance starts with Tamora’s sons Demetrius and Chiron raping and mutilating Lavinia. To make sure she does not testify against them, they cut her tongue but Lavinia uses a stick in her mouth to point out the perpetrators. With his daughter facing brutality, Titus is full of anger with a desire of revenge from Tamora’s family for all that Lavinia had to go through.
Tamora gets married to Aaron the Moor; however during all this time Titus is furious for revenge. After believing Demetrius and Chiron as personifications of rape and murder, he kills them at his house. The story intensifies when Titus invites Tamora on a feast and serves her dead sons baked in a tray. Another turn in the story comes when Titus kills Lavinia to end her shame and then stabs Tamora with anger. As Saturninus steps forward to cut down Tamora, he is given a fatal blow by Titus’s son, Lucius. Due to his villainies, Aaron the Moor was also executed and there is nothing except for bloodshed in Titus’s family who is now left with Lucius and his brother, Marcus. With more twists and bloodshed, this tragedy by Shakespeare ends up with a pile of dead characters including the Roman General Titus.
Gary - Opening the Curtains
Gary, the sequel to Titus Andronicus is an intersection of the singular world view of Taylor Mac and the tragedy play by Shakespeare. The play portrays the time during the fall of Roman Empire in 400 B.C. when all the bloody battles are over and civil war has come to an end. With causalities after the country is left at the hands of madmen, two quite lowly servants Lane and Nielsen are given the responsibility of picking up the bodies and cleaning all the bloodshed around.
What To Expect?
According to Mac, the play is a metaphor of the current world with destructive political messes. The storyline begs the question that who is going to clear all the mess which has been created by some world leaders. Will anyone even show up to clean this mess and what benefit will such people get out of this? In the words of Mac, Gary was a challenge for him in which he tried to put all the lethal events happening around the world and attempted to check if he is able to make something good out of this for the benefit of people.
Surprisingly enough, with an intense storyline and all the horrible things of the world being concentrated in the play, Gary is not a serious show but a comedy. So it will be an amazing yet an eye-opening experience for all the spectators in the arena. Written by the Pulitzer Prize finalist and MacArthur Fellow, Taylor Mac along with direction by the five-time Tony Awards winner George C. Wolfe, Gary is expected to attract large crowds.
