Measure for Measure

Production Company: Roughcast
Venue: Corn Hall

by William Shakespeare

Passion, injustice, hypocrisy and power are at the centre of Shakespeare’s darkly comic exploration of social justice and sexual politics.

Lord Angelo, appointed to govern in the absence of the Duke, insists on the strict implementation of 'the all binding law', sentencing to death the young Claudio for getting his wife-to-be pregnant. But what of Angelo's control and authority when he falls prey to exactly those urges? Caught up in the action are a medley of nuns and prostitutes, a pirate, pimps and friars.

Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall.
