“The Duchess of Malfi” is not child-friendly fare. It is dense, complex, massively sexualized, and tells a story of debauchery and tragedy to rival Tolstoy’s “Anna Karenina.” John Webster’s vision, 400 years old now, of people succumbing to temptation, madness and violence, is not a natural fit for the mind-set of your typical Philippine theatergoer. But Dulaang UP is clearly betting on its enduring power.
