Full casting has been announced for Josie Rourke’s production of Measure for Measure at the Donmar Warehouse in London.
Previously announced Marvel actress Hayley Atwell and Dunkirk actor Jack Lowden will lead the cast alternating the roles of the powerful Deputy and the powerless Novice at each performance.
Joining them are Ben Allen, Matt Bardock, Nicholas Burns, Jackie Clune, Rachel Denning, Molly Harris, Adam McNamara, Raad Rawi, Sule Rimi, Anwar Russell and Helena Wilson.
Josie Rourke’s production of Measure for Measure imagines the play in its original year of performance, 1604, and also in 2018. Shakespeare’s dark comedy looks at the dichotomy between corruption and purity, moral and civil justice and forgiveness.
The creative team includes set and costume design by Peter McKintosh, lighting design by Howard Harrison, sound design by Emma Laxton and is composed by Michael Bruce.
Measure for Measure is booking from 28 September until 24 November 2018 at the Donmar Warehouse, London.
