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.

    I want to go because it looks like a great play and this theater always excels in putting on great performances.

    I haven’t been to a play since we moved to Portland and I could use the culture!

    I volunteer on the board of directors at a community theater in Reno, NV. I am coming to visit Portland this weekend and would love to visit Artists Repertory Theatre.

    I’m a poor, starving artist, unemployed, or underemployed, for the last four years. Consequently I never get to experience a little culture in my life, except for fulfilling my volunteer commitment at a local art gallery. Would love the opportunity to experience this production.

    Peace

    Will be visiting Portland from Reno and would love to experience Portland’s arts scene in this way!

    I did my BA paper on The Duchess of Malfi / John Webster and have never had the opportunity to see any version of it performed live.

  7. Brian January 9, 2012 at 15:26 #

    I’m a recent college graduate who is currently unemployed, so I don’t have many opportunities to see things like this. I’d love to win tickets to go see this play!

    Who wouldn’t love to get out and see an awesome play? I have three rampant sons at home…is that a good enough reason? Haha :)

    I want my wife to think I’m sexy. Will this play help?

  10. Nikki January 10, 2012 at 09:33 #

    Im new to PDX, unemployed and would love a date night with my love.

    Cause I never win anything.

  12. April January 12, 2012 at 11:48 #

    I haven’t been to the theatre in months and the Artist Rep for over a year.

  13. Carolyn Wiesner January 12, 2012 at 15:32 #

    Artists Rep is a great company. I’d love to see this new production.

  14. Eric January 12, 2012 at 15:41 #

    Holy crap! Anything laced with violence, shocking wit, macabre, plot-twisting, back-stabbing, murder, sex and betrayal has got to be worthy.

  15. Courtney January 12, 2012 at 17:18 #

    I LOVE the Artists Repertory Theater and would love to go see this play. It looks phenomenal, and as a broke student, I can’t afford to see it any other way. Please pick me!

  16. daVe January 12, 2012 at 17:40 #

    at first i thought this was really about chess. the fact that it is not makes me want to go.

  17. Rob January 12, 2012 at 18:35 #

    i wanna go dutchess

  18. Katie Cox January 12, 2012 at 21:35 #

    I would like to attend this play because I really need the thrill of theater in my life right now. I have recently had a very annoying strike of bad luck (when it rains it pours, right?) and I need to see some drama that doesn’t involve my life! So out of the kindness of your giving heart (wink wink) you should help me see this performance.

  19. Sky January 12, 2012 at 21:45 #

    I guess everyone’s saying this, but I’m too poor to go to the theatre. This is my only chance!

  20. Becky Legrande January 13, 2012 at 07:04 #

    Love artists rep theatre and would be delighted to be a winner. I never win anything, but so enjoy ART that I thought I’d take the chance. Here’s to some good luck!

  21. Natalie January 13, 2012 at 07:48 #

    I am trying to branch out and find new theater favorites. I’d love to go to this!!

  22. kate January 13, 2012 at 08:06 #

    my daughter and I are looking for fun things to do in Portland. This sounds like fun!

  23. Jacoba January 13, 2012 at 09:12 #

    I love live performance art and art forms. This is something that if I wasn’t broke, i would totally buy tickets to see. But i would also like everything to win tickets!

  24. Maggie January 13, 2012 at 09:43 #

    “…Whoever fights monsters must always be careful not to become a monster – For when you look into the abyss, the abyss also looks into you…” Would love to see this sexy production of “The Duchess of Malfi”!!!

  25. Jobi January 13, 2012 at 09:59 #

    There sure is a lot of whining going on here. Quit sniveling folks. Suck it up and stop complaining about how poor you are. You are 1000 x richer than 99.99% of the planet. Your online even- geesh.

  26. Megan January 13, 2012 at 14:15 #

    I would love to see this show! I haven’t been able to go to any Artist Rep show since… Well, since Metamorphoses.. I think that was over 6 years ago. I hope I get to go!

  27. mechelle Johnson January 18, 2012 at 04:24 #

    I want to win this because Weeza and I could use a little culture in our lives
