A thrilling new production of Shakespeare’s tale of injustice
A powerful and darkly comic new production of Measure for Measure, Shakespeare’s tale of injustice and inequality, comes to light in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.
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.
Measure for Measure tickets are booking until 15 January 2022 at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, London.
What is Measure for Measure about?
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.
Directed by BlancheMcIntyre with design by James Cotterill.
