Measure for Measure

Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure

After the summer frolics of Twelfth Night the comedy takes a darker turn as RoughCast present Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure. With sexual misdeeds much in the news in Hollywood, Westminster and beyond, the timing for this darkly comic exploration of social justice and sexual politics could not have been better. 


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 when Isabella, a novice nun, pleads for her brother’s life. 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. 
This will be RoughCast’s 13th Shakespearean play.
