June 18-22: Titus Andronicus

"Hilariously horrific" sounds like an oxymoron. But if you want a play to be so violent it's funny, you'll need over-the-top gore, physical humor and a LOT of fake blood. In Faction of Fools’ Grand Guignol-style interpretation of Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus, limbs are lost, tongues are stretched, and not surprisingly, an all-white set and costumes don't stay Clorox-clean for long. The show closes this week, but you can see it Thursday through Sunday at Gallaudet University’s Eastman Studio Theatre.

Orchestral indie rock band The Family Crest and local alternative art rock band The Sea Life will also perform.
