Measure for Measure 12A

Sun 18 Aug, 3pm


"★★★★ – Excellent…a rolling mass of desire, repression and duplicity" – Financial Times


"★★★★ – Gregory Doran’s assured production offers a perfectly judged portrait of public hypocrisy and seething sexuality" – Guardian


"★★★★ – Gregory Doran's insightful realisation of Shakespeare's notorious 'problem play'...is a rare opportunity to see such an effective staging of this difficult text" – Broadway World


"To whom should I complain?"


When a young novice nun is compromised by a corrupt official, who offers to save her brother from execution in return for sex, she has no idea where to turn for help. When she threatens to expose him, he tells her that no one would believe her.


Shakespeare wrote Measure For Measure in the early 1600s, yet it remains astonishingly resonant today. Artistic Director, Gregory Doran, directs this new production.
