The Duchess of Malfi is a play whose sublime poetry is only outdone by its classic Gothic horror. The story follows the title widow, who betrays her controlling brother by secretly marrying her steward, Antonio. Soon, a twisted love triangle emerges: The Duchess' bother's obsession with retaining the purity of his family's bloodline is revealed as an incestuous obsession, and Antonio may have ulterior motives of his own. Adapted from English dramatist John Webster's 17th century play, The Duchess of Malfi features arresting and innovative staging that utilizes classic tropes to create something new and exciting. Webster's work has inspired everyone from Stephen King to Echo and the Bunnymen, and his stunning vision will come to life at Chicago's Trap Door Theatre.
