RSC Live: Measure for Measure
GB | 2019 | 210’ | Gregory Doran
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 no-one would believe her. Shakespeare wrote this play in the early 1600s, yet it remains astonishingly relevant today.
