Based on the classic play by John Webster, The Duchess of Malfi is a fresh take on a tragic tale.
Told through the eyes of the spy, Bosola, we follow his struggles to conspire against The Duchess and Antonio, two star-crossed lovers forced into exile. Bosola, a violent henchman of the Cardinal and born of rags, dreams of nothing more than raising his social status. The Duchess, born of riches, wants the freedom to marry for love, rather than position.
When their lives intersect, both suffer the price of their desires.
A timeless love story that takes us on an unforgettable journey, this tale of revenge, passion, loyalty, and prejudice is as powerful and relevant today as it was 400 years ago.
