About this show

Beatrice-Joanna is in love with Alsemero — who is unfortunately not her fiancée. But when she employs her loathsome servant De Flores to bump off her betrothed, the price is her own virgin flesh. Together with a madcap subplot set in an insane asylum, this brilliant and rarely performed Jacobean tragedy explores the folly of love and the nature of madness, in a world where acts of liberation lead to incarceration and misunderstandings have fatal consequences.
