Women Beware Women

Marianne Elliott directs Thomas Middleton's play.

Harriet Walter returns to the National to play Livia; the cast also includes Samuel Barnett, Sioned Jones, Vanessa Kirby, Harry Melling, Lauren O’Neil, Tilly Tremayne and Andrew Woodall.

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.
