Synopsis

Gripping, highly-charged and often shocking, The Changeling is one of the finest examples of Jacobean tragedy, and it is considered among the best plays of the period. Beatrice-Joanna wants to marry Alsemero but her father has other plans. Meanwhile, her servant - the hideous de Flores - would do anything to win her. When she asks him to dispose of her unwanted bridegroom, de Flores obliges. She tries to pay him off but her obsessed servant has another reward in mind - Beatrice-Joanna herself. Initially repulsed, her desire is ignited and their torrid alliance propels them on a journey of lust, lunacy and death
