In this study of sexual and political intrigue, a fascinating but dangerous woman consents to the murder of her ineffectual husband. Her defence against the charge of adultery transforms the lurid tale of crime into high tragedy.

A compellingly dangerous and fascinating play with a comprehensive set of notes and criticism.
