In the near future a post Brexit police state England’s colonial pride has been reinvigorated - David Monteith directs a contemporary take on a Shakespeare's classic
Taking advantage of a fractured Europe, England has sent its most decorated general, Titus Andronicus to ensure its dominance. Returning home after a 10-year campaign, Titus brings with him a family of troublesome and influential refugees for punishment and rehabilitation.
However, there is a new Prime Minister in town and he’s not Titus’ biggest fan. Tensions mount as Tamora, the refugee’s leader catches the Emperor’s eye. Spurred on by the malevolent Aaron, himself a victim of the refugees’ own war, love becomes a weapon, hate, blame and vengeance become the new yet familiar currency and redemption is a dirty word.
David Monteith is an actor, director, teacher/coach and co-founder of the long running Podcast Network Geek Syndicate.
David has just finished a short film with Simon Callow and performing in a successful run of Play Mas at the Orange Tree Theatre directed by Paulette Randall, who also directed him in his most recent West End role in Fences (The Duchess Theatre). He has an international Shakespearean portfolio having performed in Poland and the Czech Republic as Ariel (The Tempest), Leontes (A Winter’s Tale) and Pericles (Pericles) as well as numerous roles domestically including Prospero (The Tempest) and Aaron (Titus Andronicus).
He is very proud of playing Lincoln in Suzan-Lori Parkes' classic Topdog/Underdog, playing the lead detective in Brian Clements' Murder Hunt and fronting Benjamin Zephaniah's De Botty Business as Marky.
As a teacher, David has directed numerous student productions and showcases but his full length production directorial debut came in 2008 when he directed the Opera Orfeo at the Bridewell Theatre. Since then he has gone on to direct seven other operas his latest being a successful run of a post-apocalyptic Dido & Aeneas.
As a director, David has assisted with several international large-scale participatory promenade projects at various Shakespeare festivals with Parabola Theatre. He has also directed and assisted with Parabola’s projects home which all deal with location specific history and social issues.
