Whether we fall by ambition, blood or lust, Like diamonds we are cut with our own dust.

Loosely based on true events, John Webster’s 1612 revenge drama has gone on to be one of the most popular plays from the Jacobean period.

The play tells the story of a Duchess who marries beneath her social class and is persecuted and tortured by her brothers, the insane Ferdinand and the pious Cardinal. They hire a spy, Daniel de Bosola, to track her movements. Bosola, however, has a crisis of conscience and vows a bloody revenge on the two brothers after a series of violent events.

In this anarchic and innovative reimagining forget what you expect about classical theatre. The chorus will make sure you follow it all and explain any archaic references. They’ll also make sure any sketchy statements get called out.

Join us for an exciting night of theatre retelling a classic story in a new and dynamic way.

This is a collaboration between the wide range of Stage & Screen Programmes at The Northern School of Art including Acting, Film, Tv & Theatre Production, Production Design and Costume Interpretation with Design. Find out more about these courses.
