A physically based ensemble of actors like Theatre Lunatico's ought to be able to work stage magic with Shakespeare's bloodiest, most gruesome tragedy. In the company's rendition, Marcus (brother of the Roman general Titus) becomes Marcia and Lucius (Titus' son) is Lucia; thus, says Lunatico, "the future becomes female." The chorus observes the violence and notes "our flawed humanity." Tina Taylor directs.
