It’s 16th century Florence. And 21st century—here. A newlywed couple
attempts to protect their young marriage against a world obsessed with money, beauty,
pageantry, and power. In Howard Barker’s radical re-envisioning of Middleton’s
Jacobean tragedy, sex and the human body become sources of hope—instruments
of freedom to use against those who commodify passion, and love itself.
FOR MATURE AUDIENCES. Contains sexual situations, nudity, and violence.
