A woman pays the price for daring to disregard her social status. A powerful family is destroyed by passion, envy and cruelty.
These are the emotive themes grappled with by The Duchess of Malfi which shows at Banbury’s Mill Arts Centre on Tuesday, October 8.
The Fearless Eyestrings Theatre Company cuts to the heart of this Jacobean masterpiece with an inventive and exciting new adaption.
Watch as the pleasure-seeking world of the Duchess and her brother is unravelled using just seven actors, six chairs and a gramophone;
A truly thrilling production that confronts the epic themes of morality, class and sex head on.
Writing about the company’s work in The Guardian newspaper, Lyn Gardiner said: “This sort of daring, intelligent work is what theatre should be all about.”
