BWW Review: THE WHITE DEVIL, Shakespeare's GlobeBWW Review: THE WHITE DEVIL, Shakespeare's Globe
by Aliya Al-Hassan - Feb 2, 2017

John Webster is not what you could ever describe as a subtle writer. His bloody themes of lust, revenge and tragedy are overt and unflinching. The White Devil is based on an extraordinary true-life story in the Venetian court, where Duke Bracciano decides to seduce Vittoria with the help of her brother Flamineo, who is motivated by social mobility and power. The fact that both characters are already married seems no barrier. The result is an intoxicating and decadent game of power play and lust that leads to murder, revenge and the destruction of their very existence. (more...)
