Measure for Measure

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

The Steam Industry in association with Sasha Regan and Rosendale Productions present William Shakespeare's Measure for Measure directed by Phil Willmott.

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.
