According to director Proske, the Off-Broadway production interprets Webster's The White Devil as a contemporary dystopia, a deep dive into the maze of political power. Using live video to mirror Webster’s world of perversion, surveillance and violence, the play traces a love affair and the story of an extraordinary woman in a world of deceit, objectification, and fake news.
The production features set design by Kate Noll, costume design by Beth Goldenberg, lighting design by JiYoun Chang, sound design by Chad Raines, and video design by Yana Birÿkova.
