Everyman Theatre: Measure for Measure
By William Shakespeare
Selected by the Royal Shakespeare Company as part of Open Stages 2014-16, Everyman’s production of the rarely performed Measure for Measure promises to be a rich theatrical experience. The play is a highly political drama consistent with to-day. It is considered by some to be Shakespeare’s finest comedy, as complex in its setting, as its characters; the richness of the language, reeking of power and of the hypocrisy of the state, both in the court and the low life of the brothels of Venice.
