Young Critics: The Duchess of Malfi Reviews

The Young Critics were invited to review our production of The Duchess of Malfi by John Webster.

"The Duchess of Malfi is classically known for its graphic and gory detail, but Frecknall’s version carries a certain simplicity to it all which, quite interestingly, actually makes it more striking."

 "The Duchess of Malfi, Rebecca Frecknall’s latest Almeida production, is a sharp, fizzy and provocative adaptation of Webster’s classic revenge tragedy where design takes centre-stage."
Read Clodagh Chapman's Review

"Yet, what you cannot fault is its appeal. Brazen, bold and unrelenting, the Almeida’s showing of is definitely worth seeing, if not for the staging alone."
