About this show

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.

Performed by the Globe Young Players

Sam Wanamaker Playhouse
