“I think it’s a play about a woman trying to survive in an extremely masculine world, in a world that is so masculine that it’s become toxic.”
Director Maria Aberg discusses her interpretation of John Webster’s The Duchess of Malfi for the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2018.
Aberg explores the complexities of Webster’s text, focusing on themes, characters and plot structure, and examines his use of language compared to Shakespeare’s writing at the time. She also details her creative choices for bringing the play to life and reveals the discoveries she made while researching context.
