The Duchess of Malfi

By John Webster
Directed by David Salter

John Webster’s The Duchess of Malfi is a masterpiece of Jacobean horror, featuring political intrigue, conspiracy, a severed hand, a wolf-man and a poisoned Bible. Yet it boasts one of the most charming and radiant heroines in all classical drama. As the Duchess defies her brothers, enters into a secret marriage with the man she loves and faces persecution, we watch her magnificent spirit unfurl.
