About Measure For Measure

When a 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.

Following his spellbinding production of The Tempest in 2017, RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran transports Shakespeare’s dark comedy to 1900s Vienna. In a conflicted society of promiscuity and puritanical law, this new production unveils a shadowy world of repression and dubious morals, which feels astonishingly urgent today.
