Gemma Arterton to star in The Duchess of Malfi
Gemma Arterton will star in the 2014 Shakespeare Globe production of The Duchess of Malfi from 9 Jan to 16 Feb 2014 at The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.
The play is the inaugural production in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, a new 340-seat indoor Jacobean Theatre at Shakespeare's Globe.
Gemma Arterton's first professional stage role was at the Globe in 2007, when she played Rosaline in Love’s Labour’s Lost. She has also performed in The Master Builder at the Almeida and in The Little Dog Laughed at the Garrick.
The Duchess of Malfi by John Webster, is directed by Dominic Dromgoole and charts the calamitous consequences of a young widow's refusal to obey her brothers' command never to remarry.
