In Gary, Taylor Mac’s singular world view intersects with Shakespeare’s first tragedy, Titus Andronicus.
In Mac’s extraordinary new play, set during the fall of the Roman Empire, the years of bloody battles are over. The civil war has ended. The country has been stolen by madmen, and there are casualties everywhere. And two very lowly servants – Nathan Lane and Andrea Martin – are charged with cleaning up the bodies. It’s only 400 B.C. – but it feels like the end of the world.
