17th July - Dame Alice Owens School
Titus Andronicus is a play with 14 killings, 9 on stage, 6 severed members, one rape, one live burial, one case of insanity and one of cannibalism. With an average of 5.2 atrocities per act or one every 97 lines, this gruesome play, set against the backdrop of post-communist Russia, will re-imagined as a living, breathing, bleeding graphic novel... This production transforms one of Shakespeare's classics into a gritty, modern and exciting experience and brings the story of Titus Andronicus to life, asking the question: how far will you go for revenge?

FIRST REVIEW - Three Weeks

Bloody, shocking, and gut wrenchingly tense at times, Deadly Theatre Productions have got Shakespeare’s most gruesome play just right. This strong cast thrives in scenes of death and mutilation which have proven difficult for lesser groups to execute on stage. Rachel Jones plays a sexy, cunning and manipulative Tomora, set on getting revenge on Titus for the execution of her son; while Ben Blackburn captures perfectly the fallen hero Titus, who is in turn driven by revenge. Stand out performances also included those from Guido Caraciuti as Aaron, Alex Pett as Demetrius and Jamie Coles as Chiron who provide some comic relief in this dark play. Projected backdrops aside, the updated setting of post-communist Russia is a bit lost in the production; however it doesn’t detract much from an excellent performance.

Jamie/Chiron Shaves his head

In a desperate bid to raise money for the show, Jamie took the brave (and rather stupid) decision to let members of the audience at our first preview shave his beautiful, flowing locks. During the shaving Jamie's hairstyles ranged from mad professor to Princess Leia. But it was all worth it in the end as Jamie raised a rather impressive total of £252.11.

Well done Jamie!

(although we do miss the locks a little)



The TITANS! - Karan Gill

Karan Gill - 'Current, but without the t'
I'm Karan (said like current but without the t), I'm 19 years old and studying Natural Sciences at UCL. I studied drama at GCSE but after stuck to the sciences and it was only once I started university that I decided to give drama another shot. I got into Dan's production of 'The Usual Suspects' playing Todd Hockney and I made some of the best memories of my year during that run. With another two shows under my belt, I feel ready to tackle Edinburgh for the first time and look forward to having a total blast whilst doing so.

Kickstarter - FUNDED! (and flyer sneak peek)

      After 36 days of excitement, anxiety (and only a little bit of crying), the Titus Andronicus Kickstarter page reached the target of £3000 pounds with only a few hours to spare. We cannot thank all of our backers enough, we are genuinely touched by the amount of you that have come out to support us. You will all be receiving an email very shortly asking about how you would like your much deserved prizes to be sent to you. Thank you again to all you wonderful people, it really is a dream come true.

   In other news our posters and flyers at long last are finally finished! The flyer has been particularly challenging due to the design we are going for (why would we make things easy for ourselves? There's clearly no fun in that!). The flyer takes the shape of a mini-graphic novel, with a particularly bloody scene from Titus playing out in comic book form between the leaves of the flyer. We are now awaiting the blessing of Cvenues, once received (fingers crossed) we can begin to distribute them until you are all sick of the sight of them.

    The creative genius and technical wiz that is Jordan Nichols deserves all the praise and thanks for what is an incredible flyer design. Much love from all the cast and crew.

    Here is a sneak peek at the back of the flyer - Titus having a rather bad day.....

The TITANS! - Howard Horner (Lucius)

Making other men's facial hair seem inadequate
 since 1991... Howard Horner.
I'm Howard, I'm 21, I study English at UCL and I have a beard. I started acting pretty much as soon as I realized it would allow me to dress up, wear make-up, and be the center of attention. Since then I have appeared in many plays, both in University and in the big bad world outside, with roles ranging from King Lear through Margaret Thatcher and all the way to Soldier Number 3. However, despite the years of experience, this will be my first journey to the Edinburgh Fringe, so be nice. I first worked with Dan (or should that be Deadly Theatre Productions?) on Reservoir Dogs in 2011, where I played Mr. Orange, a character who essentially gets shot throughout the duration of the play. I am eternally grateful that this time, Dan has given me a role where I get to do the shooting. Joy.
