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.

Joey and Denny are two Chicago police officers and lifelong best friends. Joey is single and lonely. Denny is married with children. Both have serious problems. While Joey struggles with a drinking problem and secretly loves Denny's wife, Connie,  Denny can barely disguise his racism and cheats on Connie with a prostitute on his beat. When they inadvertently return a boy to a cannibalistic serial killer who claims to be the child's uncle, their friendship spirals and the membrane of desire and lies is ripped apart.
