MEASURE FOR MEASURE By William Shakespeare

MEASURE FOR MEASURE By William Shakespeare

January 1, 1970 - January 1, 1970

The Rose Playhouse

10th to 29th May 2016 All Performances at 7.30 pm (Sundays at 3.00 pm Only) No Monday Performances

Vienna has fallen into disarray, decadence and debauchery after decades of corrupt rule, with justice turning a blind eye. A chaotic city, full of hot heads and hot beds, driven by an alluring beat. The Duke has fled, appointing the cool headed, cold hearted Angelo to make things right. When Angelo sentences Claudio to death for breaking the law on his watch, Claudio's virtuous sister Isabella is dragged from the nunnery to help, but Angelo’s autocracy begins to waver in the face of the enigmatic Isabella.

This chaotic, intoxicating and electrifying play sparks with life. The timeless themes of power, hypocrisy, sex, faith and justice continue to resonate today, as we celebrate 400 years since Shakespeare’s death.

After the critically acclaimed success of their first production, RECKLESS, Heady Conduct bring Shakespeare’s dramatic tragi-comedy to the Rose Playhouse, fusing their distinct style and originality with the genius of Shakespeare’s writing.

 Life...is a paradise, to what we fear of death.” 

The Rose is an indoor archaeological site; it is advisable to dress warmly because there is no heating. There are no toilets, so please use those at Shakespeare’s Globe, which is 200 metres away.
