By John Webster.
The Duchess of Malfi is one of the great Jacobean plays, and this new production focuses on the personal tragedies of a powerful family rent by lust and betrayal.
When the widowed Duchess marries her steward Antonio, the choice challenges the accepted social order and established lines of power.
It also brings her into direct conflict with her powerful brothers, the Duke Ferdinand and the scheming Cardinal, and tragedy ensues.
The dark tale is enhanced by dark music written especially for the play.
