The character of Titus is the center of the events unfold. The events that led to the cooking scene (murder, rape, hand chopping etc.) and the blood bath after it forms the course of the action revealing its political and personal implications. The scenes we select therefore are mainly the action and the counter action scenes – you did it to me I’ll do more to you I’ll do even more to you and so on. Starting and reference point is act V/scene 2 – Titus is preparing Chiron and Demetrius as the main course of tonight’s special dinner.
