Women Beware Women Opens November 8 in Sheafer Theater

Directed by Jay O'Berski, Theater Studies faulty
UNLEASH THE HELLHOUNDS OF LOVE - Thomas Middleton's Women Beware Women burns with feverish characters who manipulate the desires and fears of both their enemies and friends. This lost classic hums with the sensuality of a film noir and howls with comedic characters that spiral into a passion pit of their own making.

Women Beware Women by Thomas Middleton and adapted and
directed by Jay O’Berski, Theater Studies faculty, ran in Sheafer Theater in the Bryan Center on Duke's West Campus November 8-18, 2012.
