BST Presents THE CHANGELING And THE DUCHESS OF MALFI In Repertory
by BWW News Desk - Oct 3, 2018

BST's fall repertory explores depraved violence, sexual obsession, and female determination in two of the greatest tragedies written for the early modern stage. In The Changeling, Beatrice-Joanna goes to any lengths rather than be forced to marry a man she doesn't love--including murder. Though four hundred years old, this gripping play presents an all too familiar picture of women's entrapment and degradation at the hands of men. The Duchess of Malfi also follows the tragic efforts of a noblewoman to marry for love and to free herself of the writhing political, religious, and erotic web spun by her family. Inspired by a true story, his macabre, punk beauty of a play draws together extraordinary language, violent delights, and some of the most complex and memorable characters in Jacobean drama.
