Titus Andronicus - William Shakespeare What a bloodbath! My friend warned me about this play but I wasn't prepared for the carnage I witnessed, right from the first scene.This is so much more tragic than Hamlet. There were so many despicable characters too, especially Tamora, Queen of the Goths. Must have been difficult to act this play out back in the day. Not one that I'd want to re-read but it was entertaining all the same.
