Vicious but mesmerizing, The Duchess of Malfi tells the story of one of the stage’s greatest women and two of its greatest villains. The widowed Duchess disobeys her two brothers by secretly marrying her household steward. When they reveal her sham, a slew of dreadful events are planned that ultimately result in a tale of tragic love and persisting madness.

Through 6/15  $16-40, times vary. Blackfriars Playhouse, 10 S. Market St., Staunton. (540) 851-1733.
