Titus Andronicus

Titus Andronicus

On Friday 14th November, 17 students from Years 10 and 11 performed a half hour version of Shakespeare's bloodiest tragedy, Titus Andronicus, at Northern Stage as part of the Shakespeare Schools Festival. They were joined by Benfield School performing Romeo and Juliet, NPS performing Macbeth and (perhaps a relief to the audience after a body count of at least 20 over an hour and a half) Gosforth Central Middle School with A Midsummer Night's Dream. It was, as ever, a thrill to be part of the festival and to be so well supported in a large venue, not least as the audience contained past members of every previous RGS SSF production - some of whom had traveled back from university for the occasion!
