Measure For Measure by William Shakespeare

Measure2

With society in turmoil, a political leader appoints his hard-line deputy to purge the city of sexual corruption. But is an iron hand the best answer? What happens when personal passion confronts political policy? And who owns sex anyway?

Justice, morality and gender equality are thrown into the spotlight in this electric, site specific take on Shakespeare’s powerful social satire.
