Measure For Measure

Direct from Stratford-upon-Avon.

The RSC returns with a season of exhilarating Shakespeare plays bursting with contemporary resonance.

Opening the season is Shakespeare’s dark comedy, Measure For Measure. Directed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran, this intense and compelling production is shockingly relevant for today.

When a young novice nun is compromised by a corrupt official, who offers to save her brother from execution in return for sex, she has no idea where to turn for help. When she threatens to expose him, he tells her that no one would believe her.

Shakespeare wrote this play in the early 1600s, yet it remains astonishingly resonant today.
