"A great romance turns to horror as the Duchess of Malfi seeks true love in a world of forbidden passions," according to press notes. "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."
