ROYAL LYCEUM THEATRE / CITIZENS THEATRE
In a new version by Zinnie Harris after John Webster.
A Royal Lyceum Theatre (Edinburgh) and Citizens Theatre (Glasgow) co-production.
Webster’s The Duchess of Malfi is the most thrilling and chilling of the Jacobean revenge tragedies – an exploration of male rage and female resistance as two brothers try and control their sister, block her marriage and repress her agency with fatal results.
Webster’s dark tale of bloody treachery is fuelled and retooled by Zinnie Harris’ insight, vivid imagery and dazzling prose.
