In 17 years of producing the Bard’s work on local stages, Southwest Shakespeare Company has never done the play often referred to as “Shakespeare’s B-movie” — the over-the-top “Titus Andronicus.”

Until now.

The tragedy opens Thursday in Mesa.

“Titus” was a young Shakespeare’s take on the revenge tragedies popular in his day, and it turned out to be one of his most popular works during his lifetime. Southwest Shakespeare Company describes it as a “savage comedy (that) has flashes of black humor, beautiful imagery and stylized violence that make this portrait of an empire in decline uniquely entertaining.”
