DIRECTOR Maria Aberg has taken on John Webster’s revenge tragedy The White Devil with a vengeance. (Royal Shakespeare Company, Swan Theatre, Stratford upon Avon) Just like The Two Gentlemen of Verona next door in the main theatre, the setting is contemporary Italy, but Aberg creates a selfish, decandent and cruel society. Webster’s play was shocking in its day with eight murders resulting from Vittoria and Bracciano’s adultery, but Aberg enables us to empathise with all of the characters, even if their behaviour is outrageous, which makes it all the more disturbing.
