a jacobean period piece by Thomas Middleton. Most of his plays involve cunning women, rapist men, lots of sex, and ends in death. this play is about power vs love. power always wins (or loses depending on how you look at the ending).

Love Middleton (although Marlowe still holds a prime place in my heart)! Couldn't believe my professor when he said previous classes hated Middleton -- but they were always comparing him to Shakespeare. Middleton's definitely in a class of his own - but still deserves kudos for the amazing plays he wrote! WBW still gotta be my favourite -- it's so deliciously wicked ;)
