Valencia College Presents THE DUCHESS OF MALFI, Opening 2/14

The Valencia College Theater will present a new adaptation of "The Duchess of Malfi", premiering Feb.14, and running through Feb. 24.

Originally written by John Webster in 1612 and performed at London's Globe Theatre in 1613, this visceral and violent tale is based loosely on the life of Giovanna d'Aragona, the Duchess of Amalfi.

The macabre and tragic play has long been considered one of the greatest tragedies of the Renaissance. Violence, revenge and destruction abound in this tale of courtly corruption. Malfi is a treacherous place, with political and personal allegiances in constant conflict as revenge breeds revenge, love turns to hatred, and destruction is the tragic end result.

Valencia College Theatre presents this rarely seen work in a vital and new adaption written and designed by Michael Shugg and directed by John DiDonna, with lighting design by Kristen Abel, and costume design by Virginia McKinney.

All performances will be in the Valencia College Black Box Theater, located on Valencia's East Campus in Building 3.

Curtain times will be 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays. Sunday performances will begin at 2 p.m.

General admission tickets cost $12. Senior citizens, Valencia faculty, staff and students may purchase tickets for $10. Tickets can be purchased online at www.valenciacollege.edu/arts.

Use the code "VALENCIAWEB" for a $2 discount on each ticket. The discount is for online purchases only. Tickets and more information are also available by calling the college box office at 407-582-2900.
