To this end they introduce a spy into her household, the ruthless Bosola. The court of Malfi is a treacherous place, with political, religious and personal allegiances in constant conflict. But the Duchess is blinded to its dangers by her love for her servant, Antonio. When their marriage is revealed her outraged brothers determine on a devastating course of action. Revenge breeds revenge, love turns to hate and a powerful tale of despair and madness inexorably unfolds.Performers Christine Absalom, Ian Kirkby, Tony Casement, Miranda Floy, Kate Gartside, Ignatius Anthony, Peter Forbes, Jim Conway, Justin Grattan, Emma Gregory, Adrian Stokes.
