The Changeling

By Thomas Middleton and William Rowley

‘A guilty pleasure’ The Guardian
‘Atmospheric lighting, sinister cinematic techniques and a mad dance straight out of Bedlam make it very chilling indeed.’ The Stage

Opening at the Nottingham Playhouse, this electrifying mix of violence, family duty and sex toured the UK in Autumn 2007.

Beatrice-Joanna wants to marry Alsemero but her father has other plans.  Meanwhile, her servant – the hideous Deflores – would do anything to win her.   In return for killing the man her father has chosen as her husband, Deflores names his price – Beatrice-Joanna herself.  At first repulsed, her desire is ignited and their torrid alliance thrusts them on a journey of lust, lunacy and death.

Often hailed as the greatest Jacobean tragedy, The Changeling is an electrifying mix of violence, family duty and sex.
