The Devil’s Law Case (1963)


A Jacobean era stage play, a tragicomedy written by John Webster, and first published in 1623. The Devil’s Law Case is unusual in that it has no specific clown figure; its comic relief is supplied by various minor characters. The play delivers doses of Websterian bitterness, against men, women, lawyers, and doctors.
