Ambition and treachery overcome familial bonds when a noblewoman marries for love, denying her two brothers further control over her and her wealth. The brothers’ savage determination to regain their sister’s property leads them into a downward spiral towards the depths of inhumanity. Drenched in the passion, intrigue and violence celebrated by the Jacobeans, The Duchess of Malfi is an intensive study of the consequences of sin and the triumph of revenge, not redemption. Michael Kahn will direct Shakespeare Theatre performer and acclaimed stage and film actress Kelly McGillis, last seen as Lavinia Mannon in Kahn’s 1997 Mourning Becomes Electra.
