Titus Andronicus sets up two very different models for female action and agency through the characters of Tamora and Lavinia. What similarities do you see between the characters, and what differences do you see? Is one model of female action and agency favored in the play? What can be made of the place of women in the Roman culture, the Goth culture, Elizabethan England, and today? How might these characters be even further activated in a contemporary production?
