SUMMARY

Fascist Italy, 1933. Two despotic brothers tyrannize their own country. But their corrupt and merciless regime struggles to contain one ungovernable force: their sister. The Duchess.

She seduces the man she loves in defiance of her brothers, but their obsessive jealousy follows her at every turn. As she fights for the life she wants, the Duchess draws ever closer to her terrifying fall.

This production of Webster's dark and thrilling play will use film, sound and a powerful aesthetic to recreate Mussolini's world of false propaganda and brutal masculinity, where lust and violence reign.

"Your darkest actions, nay, your privatest thoughts, will come to light."

Admission: £10(£8)
