This show has now finished

'She stains the time past, lights the time to come'. UCLU Runaground presents a condensed, claustrophobic version of Webster's greatest Jacobean tragedy. A poetic triumph, observe the Duchess's dignity and resolve as she battles for her freedom in the face of two calculating brothers set on revenge. Bloody, visceral and shrouded in darkness, boundaries are blurred between good and bad, heaven and hell. Webster questions how easy it really is to discern our friends from our enemies. In the world of Malfi, all are marked for death. The questions that remain: how and when?
