Cruelly oppressed by her nefarious brothers, the widowed Duchess of Malfi seeks love in a world dripping with bloodlust and illicit desire. Dismembered bodies, werewolves, and a toxic Bible--experience them all through the soaring poetry and searing passions of Webster's tragedy of horrors. Dr. Brent Griffin directs this macabre masterpiece employing his own cutting-edge editorial techniques for the first time in a full-length "original practices" production.
$20 for Adults, $15 for Students and Seniors
