By John Webster
Directed by Jesse Berger

A great romance turns to horror as the Duchess of Malfi seeks true love in a world of forbidden passions. A play for our time as much as its own, John Webster’s The Duchess of Malfi examines sexual repression, honor, class, and the true value of the human spirit, in this explosive drama of Italian intrigue. Red Bull Theater’s production was the first New York revival of this Jacobean masterpiece in over 50 years.

THE DUCHESS OF MALFI played Theater at St Clement's for an extended Off Broadway Run from February 21 - March 28, 2010.
