The Duchess of Malfi

by Lazarus Theatre Company

Tuesday 17 March 2009 - Saturday 4 April 2009

Lazarus presents John Webster’s gripping and powerful Jacobean tragedy in a production using movement, visual art and an original score. Re-imagined in 1940s England, this dark and passionate play follows the Duchess’s tragic spiral of reputation, love and ultimately death…

London 1939, on the eve of war.

The Duchess, a widow, finds love in the arms of her servant Antonio: their dangerous love affair is played out against the darkness of a world that forbids them to be together.

‘An eloquent and heartfelt depiction of a stately woman caught in a rich yet claustrophobic society which would see fit to trade her.’
