Framed as a sequel to Shakespeare's bloodiest tragedy, Titus Andronicus, The Moor's Son chronicles the life of Aaron, named for his evil father, though raised by Emperor Lucius in the court of Rome. After being exiled for a crime he didn't commit, Aaron returns to in secret to offer condolences to his ailing foster father, but when he is accused of assassinating the Emperor's trusted advisor, Aaron must face his past and the prejudices of Rome in order to clear his name. Written in iambic pentameter, The Moor's Son is a political murder mystery that builds on the bloody events of Shakespeare's first and goriest play.
