Titus Andronicus 

When: Sundays, 2 p.m., Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Thu., Aug. 31, 7:30 p.m. Continues through Sept. 3 2017
Price: $15-$20
Roman general Titus Andronicus is tired of war. He's returned victorious one last time, bringing Tamora, Queen of the Goths, and her three sons back home as captives. He makes the fateful decision to sacrifice her oldest son to the gods in memory of his own boys, who died during the war. This infuriates Tamora — and her secret lover sees his chance wreak devastation on all sides. Bloodshed and ruin flow from this moment on, ruining Titus' remaining family, perhaps even breaking his spirit and his mind, while Rome teeters on the brink of ruin. William Shakespeare's tragedy Titus Andronicus is gory, violent and often horrible, but there is hard truth in all that blood. St. Louis Shakespeare presents Titus Andronicus at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday (August 25 to September 3) at the Ivory Theatre (7620 Michigan Avenue; www.stlshakespeare.org). Tickets are $15 to $20.
