About Duke Bluebeard’s Castle
Judith ventures through the dusky castle of her enigmatic spouse, Duke Bluebeard. Behind each locked door, there is a hidden chamber, and with each turn of the key, his troubled psyche is revealed.
The first chamber is one of unspeakable torment. The next reveal an armoury. Behind another lies a treasury, brimming with riches - but no amount of money can fill the void that haunts him.
Amidst the gloom, she discovers a beautiful garden, an oasis of respite…but the journey doesn’t end there. Judith pushes forward until she stumbles upon a seventh, final chamber of mystery, the room where her fate awaits.
