Citizens Theatre presents The Duchess [of Malfi]

A Citizens Theatre and Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh co-production By John Webster Adapted and directed by Zinnie Harris Webster’s dark tale of bloody treachery is the most thrilling and chilling of the Jacobean revenge tragedies – an exploration of male rage and female resistance as two brothers try and control their sister, block her marriage and repress her agency with fatal results. Reflecting contemporary debates about female empowerment and the abuse of male power, this bold new interpretation is written and directed by Zinnie Harris. Zinnie has garnered huge critical success for her previous adaptations of The Oresteia: This Restless House, (Citizens Theatre and National Theatre of Scotland) and her more recent versions of Ibsen’s The Master Builder (West Yorkshire Playhouse) and Ionesco’s Rhinoceros, which sold out at the Edinburgh International Festival.  Suitable for ages 14+ Contains strong language and adult themes. _____________________________________ Previews: Wed 4 ">Matinees: Sat 14 (2.30pm), Wed 18 (1.30pm) ">Access performances:  Fri 13 September 7.30pm (BSL Interpreted) Sat 14 September 2.30pm (AD and CAP) Post Show Talk: Tue 10 September TICKETING 50p Tickets:  100 tickets for 50p on sale Sat 31 August at 10am at Tramway Visit the Citizens Theatre website for full ticket information Please note if tickets are sold out for your chosen performance, they may still be available from the Citizens Theatre website.
