The White Devil

Key facts

Playwright: John Webster


In the shadows of the court and the darkness of the human heart, greed and lust corrupt and breed murderous atrocity. Consumed by a violent passion for that which is forbidden to him, the Duke of Brachiano murders his wife in order to possess another woman, triggering a cycle of violence, deceit and madness that shatters family bonds and moral values.
