Prodigal’s site-sensitive reworking of the Jacobean classic the “Duchess of Malfi” strips the play back to its bare bones creating a multilayered montage of music and voices. The court of Malfi is supplanted by the seedy 50’s underworld of a sharp-suited gangster clan and plays out in a thrilling promenade among the backrooms, stairways & surrounding streets of a city centre venue.
