Duchess of Amalfi's Steward

by Lope de Vega 
Sunday 14 September, 4.00pm

Derived from the same source as Webster’s Jacobean masterpiece, Duchess of Amalfi's Steward is a verse tragedy from the Spanish Golden Age. The widowed Duchess of Amalfi has fallen in love with her majordomo Antonio, and secretly marries him. When the truth emerges, her jilted suitor Ottavio and brother Julio plot to avenge such an injury to the family’s honour.
 

A Christian Turn’d Turk

by Robert Daborne
Sunday 5 October, 4.00pm

David Oakes -Director
Dr Emma Smith - Scholar 

Back by popular demand, Robert Daborne’s A Christian Turn’d Turk takes its inspiration from the life of 17th Century pirate (and pop culture anti-hero) John Ward. Having fallen in love with Voada, a Turkish seductress, Ward converts to Islam in order to marry her. A reformed pirate, Dansiker, provides a contrasting moral plot; when both men separately arrive in Tunis a melee of sexual adventures ensues. This raucous play contains dumb shows, disguises, battles at sea, and cuckoldry. But it is a tragedy at heart, as its characters are propelled towards a brutal conclusion.
