Young, beautiful and widowed, the Duchess of Malfi is a tragic figure of nobility and integrity. Yet she exists in a world of corruption where the true horror of her life is yet to unfold.
Her two brothers control her fortune – and her body – and they want to keep it that way. When they discover she has not only married in secret but has also borne a child, a string of murders is set in motion.
John Bell directs this white-hot adaptation of John Webster’s finest play.
The Duchess Of Malfi runs for 1 hour and 45 minutes with no interval.
