Returning to the stage for the first time in over a decade, Jodie Whittaker (Doctor Who, Broadchurch) takes on the role of a lifetime in Zinnie Harris’ acclaimed contemporary adaptation of The Duchess Of Malfi, playing at the Trafalgar Theatre for 11 weeks only.

Recently widowed and in search for a new lease of life, The Duchess (Whittaker) defies her family’s wishes by remarrying beneath her class. However, when her brothers, driven by insurmountable greed and rage, discover her second marriage they unleash a series of cruel and devastating punishments against her that repress her power. But will their vicious atrocities come back to haunt them? 

Directed and adapted by award-winning Zinnie Harris (Macbeth (An Undoing)), this adaptation of John Webster’s thrilling drama The Duchess Of Malfi explores the depths of the patriarchy against female resistance.

Vivid, complex, and captivating, this contemporary production plays in the West End this autumn from 5 October 2024. Book your tickets to see Jodie Whittaker play this iconic role now.
