With reports of audience members fainting at the gore in this bloody revival of Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus, that alone should spur you on to test your mettle against Lucy Bailey's graphic production.

If that's not enough, critics are raving about the show too. Set in the late days of the Roman Empire, it tells the story of a fictional Roman general, Titus, who becomes caught up in a brutal and devastating cycle of revenge with Tamora, Queen of the Goths.

The Globe, New Globe Walk, Bankside, until July 13.
