The Word of the Week is…’hugger-mugger’. This word, meaning ‘secretly’, has been chosen to celebrate our thrilling new play, The Duchess of Malfi, which opens tomorrow in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

Word of the Week: ‘hugger-mugger, in’ -secretly, stealthily, furtively

‘We have done but greenly
In hugger-mugger to inter him’

Hamlet, IV, 5

Voiced by Alex Waldmann, who plays Antonio in The Duchess of Malfi.
