The actors of the Globe Young Players succeed in tackling the play's inherent complexity
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Social role-play and sexual innuendo, Jacobean style. The true Duke of Genoa has lost his throne to the usurper Pietro. The Duke returns to court in disguise to expose the corruption and regain his true office. Resonating with echoes of Shakespeare's Measure For Measure and Hamlet The Malcontent is a fabulous study of courtly intrigue, betrayal and treachery.
