The Duchess of Malfi Tickets – Sam Wanamaker Playhouse

A decade after opening the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, The Duchess of Malfi, John Webster’s seminal revenge tragedy returns to London’s only indoor candlelit theatre.

A hidden family. A forbidden marriage. A dangerous and tangled web of secrets and lies.

Despite being recently widowed, the Duchess falls in love with her steward, Antonio. Her brothers are eager to retain their control over her and warn her not to remarry. But there are some things worth fighting – and lying – for…

Just how far does a woman have to go in a rigid, male-dominated world in order to protect the people she loves the most? And what desperate measures are the men in her life prepared to go to in order to retain control of her story?

Award-winning Director Rachel Bagshaw presents a ground-breaking anniversary production of Webster’s violent story of deceit and misogyny in her directorial debut at the Globe.

The Duchess of Malfi is part of the 10th anniversary season at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

‘I account this world a tedious theatre, For I do play a part in’t ‘gainst my will.’  Act IV, scene 1
