Duchess-of-Malfi“Whether we fall by ambition, blood or lust, like diamonds we are cut by our own dust.”

A secret marriage provokes fury, espionage and bloody murder in John Webster’s tragedy, one of the most celebrated plays of the Jacobean era. When the Duchess of Malfi marries below her class, her brothers – a ferocious duke and ice-cold cardinal – set a dangerous spy against her.

Their schemes spiral out of control, until nightmare engulfs them all. Nottingham Playhouse Associate Director Fiona Buffini directs this blood-soaked masterpiece and takes time out (the play runs from 30th October–14th November) to talk about the play and the politics of the period. Part of the Conspiracy season at the Playhouse.
