Transposed to a contemporary, visceral setting, John Ford's potent tragedy charts an incestuous relationship. Vivid and violent, it examines one of society's last taboos through a brother and sister's passionate descent into hell. Morality, religion and corruption collide in this 'scintillating production' (The Sunday Times), ensuring the Jacobean drama remains as shocking and controversial as it was almost 400 years ago.

Footage from 2012 production.
