In A Woman Killed With Kindness, two women fight for their emotional survival in a rural wilderness dominated by men, money and an unbending morality.
A startling domestic thriller written in 1603, A Woman Killed With Kindness strips bare two women’s lives – with forensic realism – in one of the first tragedies ever to be written about ordinary people.
Fast-moving, frightening and erotic, this is a major play in a radical production.
Katie Mitchell returns to the National Theatre to direct A Woman Killed With Kindness. Her previous productions at the South Bank venue include Pains Of Youth, …Some Trace Of Her, Women Of Troy and Waves.
