Directed by Associate Professor Jenny De Reuck, the play is the inaugural production for HIVE (Her Infinite Variety Ensemble), Perth’s first all female theatrical collective, aiming to provide substantial roles for women in Perth's theatre industry.
Prof De Reuck said the collaboration between HIVE and Murdoch has allowed her to involve many Murdoch students in the production.
“This collaboration has provided Theatre and Drama students in their third year, Honours and postgraduate studies, the opportunity to gain valuable experience in the development and production of a professional theatre piece,’ she said.
Students are performing three of the acting roles in the play and will be responsible for stage management, lighting, sound, set-design, costumes, make-up and hair under Prof De Reuck's supervision.
She said she was enormously impressed by the hard work, dedication and creativity the project has generated.
“The students have learned a lot from the more experienced women, but they would agree that it's been reciprocal. The project has been fully documented by Curtin Media Studies academic, Ken Miller, and will provide a core of fascinating research material once the season is over."
Titus Andronicus will be performed at Subiaco Arts Centre until May 21.
Tickets range from $19-$24 and can be booked from Bocs Ticketing.
