Event Details

Bridport Shakespeare Company presents Measure For Measure

Written in 1604, this dark comedy is still incredibly relevant today focusing on corruption, exploitation & justice

Nuns. low lifes, axes and bawdy wenches!

‘Isabella, a nun, has a brother: Claudio, sentenced to death for adultery in a Vienna where laws are being enforced with new zeal by the frigid Angelo, who has assumed control while the Duke is ‘away’. She begs for her brother’s life; and the price is one she finds too horrendous to contemplate. Should she break her vows- to save her brother’s life? This is Shakespeare for the #metoo generation”

Scenes from the prison and among the ‘bawds’ of the city lighten the mood of the nun’s journey into darkness.”
