‘Your wolf no longer seems to be a wolf than when she’s hungry.’
Corruption, ambition, lechery, treachery, jealousy, homicide and crimes of passion.
Confessions, extortions, suspicions, persuasions, propaganda and gossip.
Welcome to the Renaissance.
No one’s life is private.
Drawing on inspirations as diverse as Tom Waits, Film Noir, La Dolce Vita and Narco Thrillers, this production is a collision of twenty first century corruption and dirty glamour with the extraordinarily rich language of John Webster.
This contemporary re-working of The White Devil is adapted by Tony Award Nominated director Wilson Milam (Killer Joe, Bush and Vaudeville Theatre; The Lieutenant of Inishmore, RSC Barbican and Garrick Theatre; Hurlyburly, Old Vic and Queens Theatre).
