About the event

Measure for Measure is very much a play for our times. With themes of corruption, abuse of power and sexual exploitation it holds a mirror to our world as much as in Shakespeare's day. Duke Vincentio absents himself from court leaving his deputy Angelo in charge. Angelo abuses his position, seeking to take advantage of young Isabella whose brother he has condemned to death. Scenes of intense emotion are interspersed with a comic sub-plot. All this is observed by the Duke, who has disguised himself as a friar and returns at the end to bring all to book.
