The Witch of Edmonton

The Witch of Edmonton

Duke Bracciano is besotted by the beautiful Vittoria.

When he makes her an indecent proposal she can't refuse, she enlists the help of Flamineo to fool her husband, and begins an illicit affair. But their infidelity does not go unnoticed.

Accusations of adultery are made and Vittoria and Flamineo find themselves snared in a web of corruption, passion and retribution as their single minded pursuit of personal gain reaches an epic and bloody conclusion.

One of the great works of Jacobean theatre, Webster's violent tragedy is directed by Maria Aberg and was last performed by us in an acclaimed 1996 production.

Maria's recent RSC credits include the vibrant 2013 As You Like It and King John as part of the 2012 World Shakespeare Festival.

Please note this production contains violence and scenes of a sexual nature
