Titus Andronicus: ‘A Mother’s Tears’ | Shakespeare’s Globe | Rent or Buy on Globe Player


The eldest son of this distressed queen. Stay, Roman brethren, gracious conqueror, Victorious Titus, rue the tears I shed,
A mother’s tears in passion for her son! And if thy sons were ever dear to thee,
Oh think my son to be as dear to me. Sufficeth not that we are brought to Rome
To beautify thy triumphs, and return Captive to thee, and to thy Roman yoke,
But must my sons be slaughtered in the streets, For valiant doings in their country’s cause?
Oh if to fight for king and commonweal, Were piety in thine, it is in these.
Andronicus, stain not thy tomb with blood. Wilt thou draw near the nature of the gods?
Draw near them then in being merciful. Sweet mercy is nobility’s true badge,
Thrice noble Titus, spare my first-born son. Patient yourself madam… Experience five extraordinary new productions
