Women beware women by Thomas Middleton( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Thomas Middleton's rarely performed masterpiece is a fascinating and entertaining tragicomedy (or is it a comi-tragedy?) by one of Shakespeare's most popular contemporaries. This provocative play portrays a ruling class unable to divorce power from lust as three young people are seduced by the lies and treachery of the sophisticated players in the glamorous court of the Duke of Florence, including the powerful widow, Lady Livia. A playful parody of serious sexual games ultimately showing a society imploding under the pressure of sexual manipulation, victimization and gender inequality, Middleton's outrageous masterpiece is as funny, sexy, frightening and entertaining today as it must have been 400 years ago. Red Bull Theater's critically acclaimed, extended-run production of WOMEN BEWARE WOMEN was the first Off-Broadway revival of Middleton's uproarious masterpiece in nearly forty years, and has paved the way for many more revivals at theaters across the country
