For young Titus, the truth is boring. More than that, it’s sometimes painful. Surrounded by adults and peers to whom he just cannot relate, Titus weaves fanciful stories—like pigs that fall in love and an Olympic-medalist mom. Yet the real world has put him in a situation that seems hopeless. Should he give up or fight? This riveting and playful one-man show examines the struggles of loneliness and loss, and how we find the courage to truly connect.
Titus, originally written by Belgian writer Jan Sobrie, was awarded the Dutch-German Author Prize in 2007 and is considered one of Europe’s most successful plays for young people. This new English version, written by Oliver Emanuel and directed by Lu Kemp, won the 2015 International Performing Arts for Youth (IPAY) Victor Award (“People’s Choice”) for Best Theater Production.
