Cruelly oppressed by her nefarious brothers, the widowed Duchess of Malfi seeks love in a world dripping with bloodlust and illicit desire. Dismembered bodies, werewolves, and a toxic Bible—experience them all through the soaring poetry and searing passions of Webster’s tragedy of horrors. Dr. Brent Griffin directs this macabre masterpiece employing his own cutting- edge editorial techniques for the first time in a full-length “original practices” production.

What does rating this mean?

These are plays you may have read in high school or college. The plot is fairly uncomplicated, though some of the themes may be dense or dark. These plays may include supernatural elements, straight-forward politics, historical content or religious content. In these plays, there may also be bawdy language and certain adult situations. If we feel a show contains a plethora of Graphic Elizabethan Poetry (or is very bloody/violent/triggering) we will put that disclaimer in the blurb about the show.

Note for all plays: The performers of The Atlanta Shakespeare Company are specially trained to make Shakespeare’s text and intention clear, no matter the plot or the subject matter. They know precisely how to get to the emotional core of each line, each moment, each scene. We promise you will understand everything! Leave the heavy lifting to us!
