WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’S
Measure for Measure

DIRECTED BY PHIL WILLMOTT

DESIGNED BY PHILIP LINDLEY
LIGHTING BY MIGUEL VICENTE
COSTUMES BY PHILIP LINDLEY & PHILIPPA BATT

Fearing the laws of Vienna have become a mockery its wily duke appoints a deputy, the officious Angelo, to stamp out sexual excess – and then goes undercover to study the results.

Angelo’s ruthless ban on sex outside of marriage brings a reign of terror to young lovers and the city’s brothels but the tyrant has a weakness that could destroy him.

Closely observed by the Duke, the beautiful and unworldly Isabella arrives to plead with Angelo for her condemned brother’s life and the stage is set for an extraordinary three-way battle of wits, will and survival.

Can anyone claim the moral high ground as passions are stirred principles abandoned and we’re asked to consider

“The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?”
