The Duchess of Malfi LIKES: Sheryl Sandberg's "Lean In". Architecture coffee table books. Vogue Italia. A well-cut silk dress. Watching 'Magic Mike' when no one else is around. DISLIKES: Stupidity. Forced convention. Being alone. ABOUT THE DUCHESS The Duchess is the peace keeper in her own home between her two head-strong brothers. Widowed at a very young age, she's no wilting flower; she knows exactly what she wants and she's not afraid to get it. Being amidst constant power struggles is lonely - she'd love to find an intellectual equal that she can trust. FAVOURITE DUCHESS QUOTE: "For I know, where I am doom'd to live or die, I can do both like a prince." PLAYED BY: Amanda Dales Book your tickets for the Duchess of Malfi at the Theatre Royal Studio .
