Tis Pity Shes a Whore (Revels Student Editions) by John Ford
Tis Pity Shes a Whore (Revels Student Editions)

A play which focuses on a topic which is still seen as taboo today, incest. The main plot of the play distracts your attention from the many other sub - plots all of which are tales of revenge that stem from the main theme of love and marriage and end in death. You certainly need to read to the end as it it keeps you interested all the way through and comes to an exciting climax. Definitely one to read even if its just to see what people at this time thought of such immoral acts.
