The Duchess of Malfi

From Wednesday, 26th April to Saturday, 29th April7:30pm-7:30pm

The Duchess of Malfi is a macabre, gothic drama of love, revenge and redemption.  Webster built a reputation for dark, violent, bloody plays - he was parodied in the movie Shakespeare in Love as a small boy who tortures mice and who wants to write plays like Titus Andronicus when he’s older: “Plenty of blood. That's the only writing".

We've stripped back the text to create a tense psychological thriller whilst retaining the poetry of the original.  Audiences can expect to see hints of the British Gangland of the 1950/60s, as well as hints of more modern thrillers such as Reservoir Dogs.

Not suitable for young children.
