The noble Titus returns victorious to Rome bringing Tamora, Queen of the Goths as his captive. When one of Tamora's sons is condemned to die, she vows revenge and, aided by the villainous Aaron, she exacts a terrible retribution, inaugurating a grim cycle of rape, murder and cannabalism. This macabre, often brilliant tragedy comes from the earliest stage of Shakespeare's dramatic career.
