Black Widow

by Paul Thain

27th Feb - 3rd March 2018

Lord Arlington is dead, poisoned by a corned beef sandwich. His daughter Emily, who is obsessed by Hamlet, becomes convinced that her mother and a family friend are responsible. She sets out to exact a terrible revenge. Madness, murder, passion, ghosts and retribution are all themes in this complex and compelling drama that is set in the Edwardian era but involves modern sensibilities.
