Eve Best to star in The Duchess of Malfi at Old Vic.

Eve Best is to star in The Duchess of Malfi, written by John Webster, which opens at the Old Vic Theatre on 28 Mar 2012, following previews from 17 Mar 2012, running to 09 Jun 2012.

Directed by Jamie Lloyd, lighting by James Farncombe, design by Soutra Gilmour, music and sound by Ben & Max Ringham and produced by Old Vic Theatre.

The Duchess of Malfi begins as a love story, with a Duchess who marries beneath her class, and ends as a nightmarish tragedy as her two brothers exact their revenge, destroying themselves in the process.

Eve Best last appeared at The Old Vic in London and on Broadway opposite Kevin Spacey in A Moon for the Misbegotten in the 2006/2007 Season. She last appeared on the London stage in Much Ado About Nothing at the Shakespeare Globe earlier this year.
