Two women fight for their emotional survival in a rural wilderness dominated by men, money and an unbending morality.

That it were possible To undo things done, to call back yesterday, That Time could turn up his swift sandy glass To untell the days, and to redeem these hours.

A startling domestic thriller written in 1603, A Woman Killed with Kindness strips bare two women’s lives – with forensic realism – in one of the first tragedies ever to be written about ordinary people.

Fast-moving, frightening and erotic: a major play in a radical production.
