‘Whether we fall by ambition, blood, or lust,
Like diamonds, we are cut with our own dust.’
A severed hand, a scream, an echo. What horrors are waiting at the court at Malfi?
Experience John Webster’s classic of glamour and gore live online. Creation’s Digital Rep Company presents a new adaptation, in collaboration with TORCH at the University of Oxford.
Exposing how easily love can slip into madness, The Duchess of Malfi offers a delicious nightmare which plays with the boundaries of life and death, until we are no longer sure what is real. Live performers and audience will be separated in space but connected online as participants, voyeurs and witnesses.
This production is directed by Laura Wright and Natasha Rickman. It will be accompanied by learning resources for school and university students, many of whom will find The Duchess of Malfi on their syllabuses.
