“THE BEST PRODUCTION AT NOTTINGHAM PLAYHOUSE THIS YEAR”, Nottingham Post

A secret marriage provokes fury, espionage and bloody murder in John Webster’s tragedy, one of the most celebrated plays of the Jacobean era. When the Duchess of Malfi marries below her class, her brothers – a ferocious duke and ice-cold cardinal – set a dangerous spy against her. Their schemes spiral out of control, until nightmare engulfs them all.

Nottingham Playhouse Associate Director Fiona Buffini directs this blood-soaked masterpiece following her critically acclaimed productions of Time and the Conways and A Skull in Connemara. Nottingham Playhouse, 2015.
