DOUBLE FALSEHOOD

Genre: Classical, Comedy, Drama
Written by William Shakespeare and John Fletcher; Directed by Andrew Borthwick-Leslie

Double Falsehood follows two brave female protagonists, Violante and Leonora, and two contrasting leading men, Julio of honorable and modest birth, and Henriquez an aristocratic villain. The story starts with Henriquez, heir to the Duke Angelo of Spain, as he exploits his social privilege to scheme his way around beautiful women, greedy fathers and honorable brotherhoods, resulting in a disturbing yet enlightening tale of self-repentance and discovery within family, honor, madness, lust and relationships.

“I’ve directed much of the Shakespeare canon so digging into this new text for the year has been thrilling. The female characters of Violante and Leonora have a depth of wisdom and intelligence about the dreadful double standards young women face that rings too clearly now.” -- shares director Andrew Borthwick-Leslie -- ”To work carefully and intensely with this terrific ensemble over such a long period has been rewarding but also disturbing about how little our understanding of gender roles and the influence of class has really changed.”
