'Tis Pity She's a Whore

By Marion Potts

11 February 2011 – 05 March 2011 Merlyn Theatre

Adapted from the play by John Ford

Malthouse Theatre,

New Adaptation Theatre

At the beating heart of this sizzling satire of moral treachery lies a pair of forbidden young lovers: Annabella and Giovanni.

Beautiful young Annabella has three devoted admirers, but none compare to her elder brother Giovanni. When these star-cross'd siblings dare to requite their love, they unleash a tumult of vengeance, calumny and slaughter.
