The information below is intended to give you a brief guide to the show and highlight some of the other The Mandy Network members who have also been involved in this show.

  • Author
    John Webster
  • Written
    1612
  • Setting
    Italy
  • Overview
    A revenge tragedy loosely based on a real event that occurred in Italy thirty years prior to the play's composition: the murder of Vittoria Accoramboni in Padua on 22 December, 1585. Webster's dramatization of this event turned Italian corruption into a vehicle for depicting "the political and moral state of England in his own day," particularly the corruption at the royal court.

    The title of The White Devil refers to a popular contemporary proverb which held that "the white devil is worse than the black." The play itself explores the differences between the reality of people and the way they depict themselves as a good, "white" or pure.
