Women Beware Women at Camden People's Theatre

About

In the Italian court, where wealth secures power and power serves lust, the lascivious Duke can play wherever he chooses. He catches the eye of another's exquisite bride, Bianca. Can a glance secure her fate, a bribe appease her husband? Isabella's father would marry her off to a rich young idiot, while Hippolito has won her trust and desires her truly. But he's her uncle. These are her choices. If twice-widowed Livia conspires against her sex to gain a little clout, she's only fighting to survive. Corruption will not go unpunished in Thomas Middleton's blackly funny, fast and ferocious tragedy. At least the audience will escape unscathed, thanks to a top-class cast that includes Harriet Walter, Vanessa Kirby, Lauren O'Neill and Richard Lintern, and a production that updates the action from the Renaissance to 1950s Florence. No wonder the critics have been impressed.
