Marston’s viciously funny Jacobean masterpiece. The true Duke of Genoa has lost his throne to the usurper Pietro. The Duke returns to court the disguise of Malevole: a professional cynic who castigates the corruptions of the greedy, sex-mad, politically fickle court, to regain his rightful office (and his wife!) Resonating with echoes of Measure for Measure and Hamlet, Marston’s tragicomedy is a fabulous study of intrigue, lust and betrayal.
