The White Devil (2012)
by John Webster
A heady blend of lust, intrigue and murderous plotting, John Webster's play tells the story of Vittoria Corombona, a married noblewoman, who elopes with her lover when her husband and his wife are both murdered. As the finger of suspicion wavers between different parties, mysterious strangers start to appear - are these ghosts from the past or aggrieved adversaries in disguise, hell-bent on revenge?
