Every word counts

The Duchess of Malfi

The Duchess of Malfi

Synopsis

In an attempt to prevent the fiercely independent Duchess from marrying the man she loves, her corrupt brothers go on a disturbing quest to destroy her. Remarkable for its inventive and grotesque violence, yet full of dark humour, this violent revenge tragedy asks how anyone can survive in a world where masculinity has become toxic.

In 2016, Director Maria Aberg’s stylish modern dress production of Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus received rave reviews and transferred to London’s Barbican in the winter. The Daily Telegraph described it as 'pacy, eerie and full of trickery' while The Times called it 'soul-scouring theatre'. We are excited to welcome Maria back to tackle this gory tale of revenge in her own distinct style.
