New Zinnie Harris production of The Duchess of Malfi

Professor Zinnie Harris is producing a new version of John Webster’s The Duchess of Malfi, to be premiered at the Lyceum in Edinburgh in 2019. Of the production, Harris said: ‘In this #MeToo age of feminist uprising in the face of toxic masculinity, now feels like the perfect time to revisit this incredible, brutal story of female determination in the face of patriarchal power.’ This work follows an extraordinary 2017 for Harris, who was recently made a Professor at St Andrews. Last year three of her woks, This Restless House, Meet Me at Dawn, and a new version of Ionesco’s Rhinoceros, were produced at the Edinburgh International Festival, to great acclaim.
