Almeida Theatre artistic director Rupert Goold has announced a socially distanced season of three world premieres for Christmas 2020 and into 2021.
A magnetic stage presence, Lydia Wilson is a strong woman in The Duchess Of Malfi, clever, kind, stoic and justifiably angry. It makes her an all the more tragic figure.
The Almeida Theatre has announced that associate director Rebecca Frecknall’s new production of John Webster’s revenge tragedy The Duchess of Malfi will star Lydia Wilson in the title role. The production opens on 10 December 2019, with previews from 2 December, and runs until 18 January 2020.
The blood-soaked events of The Duchess [of Malfi], a co-production between the Lyceum and the Citizens Theatre, are almost unwatchably intense at times. As a depiction of timeless and timely considerations, however, this production is hard to beat.
