Background


Artistic Director Josie Rourke's production of Measure for Measure imagines the play in its original year of performance, 1604, and also in 2018.


Within every performance, Hayley Atwell and Jack Lowden will alternate the roles of powerful Deputy and powerless Novice.


Synopsis


The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?


Vienna is corrupt.


The Duke, who has let the city fall to vice, hands control to his Deputy, a hardline, puritan reformer.


The Deputy uses ancient laws to sentence citizens to death for sexual misconduct.


But when a religious Novice pleads for clemency, their heady encounter leaves the Deputy guilty of the very crime that the law condemns.
