Drama Classics: The World’s Great Plays at a Great Little Price

The Italian Court is riddled with corruption in this classic Jacobean tragedy.

The Duke Brascino is openly seducing a married woman, Vittoria, while plotting the murder of his own wife. Vittoria’s brother Flamineo, a cold-blooded murderer, tries to exploit his position as Brascino’s servant and pander. Finally Brascino’s enemies, outraged by his perversions, seek a vicious revenge.

John Webster’s play The White Devil was first performed at the Red Bull Theatre, London, by Queen Anne’s Men in 1612.

This edition, in the Nick Hern Books Drama Classics series, is edited by J.R. Brown, with an introduction from Simon Trussler.
