Measure for Measure

Measure for Measure
St. Luke’s Church, 18th-20th November 2010

Vincentio, the Duke of Vienna, begins to despair at the loss of the city’s strict laws against sex before marriage. Leaving his people in the seemingly-capable hands of Lord Angelo, the Duke disguises himself as a humble friar and becomes inextricably involved the unfolding events.

It is only through the actions of a condemned brother, a chaste sister and a treacherous advisor that the Duke is able to discover Angelo’s true nature and change the fates of the people he has left behind.

Measure for Measure is a twisted entanglement of lust, deceit and comedy that questions authority and laughs at crime.
