THE DUCHESS OF MALFI

A woman pays the price for daring to disregard her social status. A powerful family is destroyed by passion, envy and cruelty. Lead by Cheek by Jowl Associate Owen Horsley, the fearless Eyestrings Theatre Company cuts to the heart of this Jacobean masterpiece with an inventive and exciting new adaptation. Watch as the pleasure-seeking world of the Duchess and her Brothers is unravelled using seven actors, six chairs and a gramophone; a truly thrilling production that confronts the epic themes of morality, class and sex head on.
