THE EVEN MORE LAMENTABLE TRAGEDY OF LAVINIA by Laura Zlatos
A retelling of Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus from Lavinia’s perspective. Set in the present day, reminiscent of the late Roman Empire if the late Roman Empire had Twitter, this dark comedy reimagines Lavinia’s experience of womanhood in a neo-Swiftian society (Taylor, not Jonathan) as Lavinia becomes a bad-ass vigilante who avenges the crimes committed against her, all while attempting to take the perfect selfie.
