Webster’s stunning tragedy explores class and gender inequality, misogyny, madness and murder in a High Renaissance court. Recent exposés of toxic masculinity by the #MeToo movement provide one the many contemporary resonances of the play. This adaptation transports the drama to a wealthy ‘Mafia’ family, set against the backdrop of a 1960s Italian film studio and the Vatican.
