Measure for Measure

by William Shakespeare

Drama of justice, destructive sexual passion and government

 
The Duke pretends to abandon his debauched city, allowing his deputy Angelo to impose a puritanical crackdown on sexual licence.

Under his tyrannical regime, Claudio is condemned to death for fornication. His virginal sister Isabella is called from her convent to plead for his life. But the morally upright Angelo will only spare Claudio on condition that Isabella sacrifices her virginity to him. The disguised Duke intervenes.

This powerful, ambiguous drama raises challenging questions about the power of the state over the individual, as Isabella wrestles with the choice between saving her own immortal soul or her brother's life.

We're setting Shakespeare's queasy, unsettling and bawdy parable in the present-day - where challenges of state hypocrisy and government of ourselves by ourselves still demand answers from us.

Suitable for ages 12+ (contains sexual references)
