The American Shakespeare Center presents “The Duchess of Malfi” Monday, October 22nd, 2012, 7:30 pm
Since 1988, the American Shakespeare Center has produced English Renaissance plays in a bold, fresh style, bringing Shakespeare and other early modern works to communities across the country and around the world. Direct from the stage of the Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton, VA, the ASC On Tour employs Shakespeare’s own staging conditions to break down the barriers that traditionally separate performer and audience. The Duchess of Malfi by John Webster was written in 1612-13 and is based on a true story. The play begins as a love story, with a Duchess who marries beneath her class, and ends as a nightmarish tragedy as her two brothers exact their revenge, destroying themselves in the process.
Workshops in stage combat on 10/22/12 in the theatre at 10:30 am and 1:00 pm. Workshops are free and open to the public.
