'Madness and melancholy suffuse John Webster's tragedy The Duchess of Malfi.' Paul Denver, Sunday Times, 18.07.10 'The play's jauntily disagreeable 17th- century plot- involving murderous violence and unbridled misogyny- is redeemed by its language, as fresh as if it had been written hours ago.' Kate Kellaway, Observer, 18.07.10
