About The Duchess of Malfi 

Illicit marriages, secret families, deception and lies…

Following the death of her husband, The Duchess discovers herself caught up in a frowned-upon love with her steward Antonio. Meanwhile, her controlling brothers are determined to keep her firmly under their control, so advise against her remarrying, but the Duchess is prepared to fight (and even lie) for her own freedom. In a society ruled by men and their rigid norms, The Duchess must battle to defend all she loves, whilst the men in her life are desperate to control her destiny and seize her fortune, and will turn to extreme measures to do so.
