Women Beware Women
Kde Olivier Theatre, National
Women Beware Women, set in Italy, where wealth equals power - and power is equal to corruption. Tickets for Women Beware Women here!
In the Italian court, where wealth secures power and power serves lust, the lascivious Duke can play wherever he chooses. He catches the eye of another's exquisite bride, Bianca. Can a glance secure her fate, a bribe appease her husband?
Isabella's father would marry her off to a rich young idiot, while Hippolito has won her trust and desires her truly. But he's her uncle. These are her choices. If twice-widowed Livia conspires against her sex to gain a little clout, she's only fighting to survive.
Corruption will not go unpunished in Thomas Middleton's blackly funny, fast and ferocious tragedy.
