De Flores will do anything for Beatrice Joanna… literally anything.
Beatrice Joanna has fallen in love with Alsemero, but she is betrothed to Alonzo, a man she does not like, let alone love. Employing her Mother’s servant, De Flores (by whom she is repulsed) she disposes of Alonzo, but when it comes to payment De Flores doesn’t want money.
Their descent into hellish madness haunted by ghosts and lunatics, propelled by obsession and sex, leads to one of the bloodiest, ferocious, and downright bonkers climaxes of the English stage.
Regarded as one of the greatest masterpieces of Jacobean drama Middleton and Rowley’s extraordinary play of jealousy, lust, and murder hits Southwark Playhouse in this theatrical, daring and full throttle ensemble production.
Recommended for ages 14+.
