The best kept secret of English graduates is that Jacobean plays are cracktastic. Never knowingly passing up an opportunity for incest, adultery and corruption, the playwriters take lascivious delight in whipping it all up with rapier wit from its cast of unremitting bastards of both genders to a murderous and often gory crescendo. 

Marianne Elliot's whirling production at the National is a tenner if you pre-book.  Run.. it's stone cold brilliance.

Must turn off interweb and revise.
