Is the desire of love or power the most alluring? Edgy and visceral, this contemporary adaptation of John Webster's classic Jacobean revenge tragedy is a world-premiere production. In this re-imagined classic, the Duchess of Malfi defies her brother's chess game of power, manipulation and morality.
Laced with violence and shocking wit, this macabre, plot-twisting, back-stabbing saga of murder, sex and betrayal doesn't come to a pretty end. The play is written by former Portland playwright, Joseph Fisher, whose Artists Rep credits include adaptations of Chekhov's The Seagull (2006) and Carlo Goldoni's The New House (2003).
This is the World Premiere of Joseph Fisher's adaptation of the classic The Duchess of Malfi by John Webster. Written in 1612, Webster's The Duchess of Malfi was published for the first time in 1623, and is loosely based on true events that occurred between about 1508 and 1513. The Duchess was Giovanna d’Aragona, whose father, Arrigo d’Aragona, Marquis of Gerace, was an illegitimate son of Ferdinand I of Naples. Her husbands were Alfonso Piccolomini, Duke of Amalfi, and (as in the play) Antonio Bologna.
