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+
