After a divorce leaves him suffering a nervous breakdown, a teacher at the posh Dawson Middle School receives the final insult when he is tasked with directing the school’s spring play. Reeling from his personal collapse, Mr. Benjamin chooses to lead the kids in Shakespeare’s bloodiest tragedy: Titus Andronicus.
His downward spiral only draws tighter when the students supplant the teacher and he learns the toughest lesson of all in this adult-oriented, darkly comic piece written and directed by Troy Heard
“Titus Andronicus Jr.” received a developmental reading as part of UNLV’s inaugural Organic + Homegrown Playwrights Festival in March ’16. It subsequently received a workshop production at the Onyx Theatre in Las Vegas.
