Titus Opens May 30 at London's Shakespeare Globe

News   Titus Opens May 30 at London's Shakespeare Globe Titus Andronicus, the latest production in the Globe’s “The Edges of Rome” season, opens at the open air venue May 30.

Lucy Bailey's (The Postman Always Rings Twice, The Night Season and for the Globe As You Like It) production will be the second in the regime of the Globe’s new artistic director Dominic Dromgoole.

Douglas Hodge takes on the title role in what is considered Shakespeare’s bloodiest play. It’s hard to imagine a greater contrast between the role of Titus and that of Nathan Detroit, which Hodge played opposite Ewan McGregor’s Sky in the current West End production of Guys and Dolls.

As director, Hodge’s touring revival of the wartime comedy See How They Run arrives at the West End’s Duchess Theatre on June 20, with an official opening night June 29.

See How They Run is set in an idyllic English village where the inhabitants prepare for the seemingly imminent Nazi invasion. Resident nosey parker Miss Skillon – played by an Olivier Award-winning Maureen Lipman during the play’s previous West End outing in 1984 – is convinced that the wife of the local vicar is having an affair and tries to expose her.

Included in the cast of See How They Run are Tim Pigott-Smith, Nancy Carol (currently playing the heroine Alice Maitland in the current National Theatre revival of The Voysey Inheritance), Jo Stone-Fewings and Julie Legrand from British Television’s “Footballer’s Wive’s”.
