The Cultch
1895 Venables Street, Vancouver, British Columbia V5L 2H6
by Colleen Murphy
Adapted from William Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus

Produced by Rumble Theatre and presented by The Cultch

Runs Nov 22 — Dec 3, 2017 at The Cultch's Historic Theatre

About the show:


Five actors perform a contemporary version of Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus that one of them has penned…but they sometimes forget their lines, or they say what they want to, or refuse to stay dead when they are killed. Audaciously satirical and physical, The Society for the Destitute Presents Titus Bouffonius is an unflinching look at war, rage, grief, and the delicate intersection of the beautiful and the grotesque in our world today.

Written by two-time Governor General’s Award winner Colleen Murphy, The Society for the Destitute Presents Titus Bouffonius is the second play commissioned for Rumble’s contemporary adaptation program.
