Shakespeare’s powerful and darkly comic Measure for Measure comes to thrilling life in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.
When the government starts policing the free expression of sexual desire, Isabel is drawn from the safe space of her convent to rescue her brother from death under the new laws.
Only his freedom comes at a price. Her.
In a hypersexualised, politically polarised society, morality is messy and principles are compromised. What would you be willing to lose in the fight for justice?
Director Blanche McIntyre presents Shakespeare’s play from the perspective of Isabel, told with thrilling suspense and remarkable resonance.
