The Duchess of Malfi and Other Plays - John Webster

4.2: Bracciano goes to see Vittoria, who's being held at the house for penitent whores. A fake love letter from Francisco is intercepted (as inteded by the Great Duke) and sparks a jealous row. Unfortunately for Francisco's plans, Bracciano and Vittoria make up and plan to escape to Padua. The Pope has died, the Cardinals are in conclave and the city of Rome is in a genral tizzy - it's a good time for an escape.
