The White Devil
By John Webster
Lent Week 4
Flamineo is a ruthlessly aspirational malcontent. His sister, Vittoria, is a strong willed woman with questionable morals. Her lover, Bracciano, is shamelessly self-centered, and stops at little to attain what he desires. These characters are the basis of what is one of the very darkest and bloodiest of revenge tragedies.
Set in contemporary Russia, this production of Webster's ‘The White Devil’ entertains the clashes of political ambition. Infidelity, murder, corruption and above all revenge within the atmospheric confines of the Russian Orthodox Church and the cold streets of an oligarchy’s Machiavellian Moscow.
