John Webster's epic tale of love and desperation. Read More >

The Duchess Of Malfi is an electrifying portrayal of a society destroyed by desire, deceit and desperation.

This new production of John Webster’s play is set amid the superstitious society of 1930s circus folk, a vagabond troupe of strongmen, bearded ladies, clowns, trapeze artists, fortune tellers and psychics, who inhabit a world of lunacy, laughter and longing.
