The White Devil


RSC Version


John Webster


Nick Hern Books

“Strong and compelling... a heightened and visceral re-envisioning of Webster’s bloody tragedy” —WhatsOnStage

“Impressive... not only gives every plot-twist a gripping, edge-of-your-seat clarity, but also forces you to wrestle with how much, and how little, has changed over the last 400 years.” —Telegraph

A violent tragedy, regarded as one of the great works of Jacobean theatre.

Duke Bracciano is besotted by the beautiful Vittoria. When he makes her an indecent proposal she can’t refuse, she enlists the help of Flaminio to fool her husband, and begins an illicit affair.

But Vittoria and Flaminio soon find themselves snared in a web of corruption, passion and retribution as their single-minded pursuit of personal gain reaches an epic and bloody conclusion.

This Prompt Book edition of The White Devil was published alongside the Royal Shakespeare Company’s revival of the play in 2014, and features the text edited for the RSC production, and introductions by key members of its creative team.

John Webster (c. 1580–c. 1634) was a Jacobean dramatist best known for his tragedies The White Devil and The Duchess of Malfi, considered to be masterpieces of the early 17th-century theater. He was a contemporary of William Shakespeare.
