Sexual Power Corrupts.
Political Power Corrupts Completely.
Enter Shakespeare’s precarious world of promiscuity and sexual corruption with Sherman Cymru’s electric take on Measure for Measure in Cardiff Bay.
With society in turmoil, a political leader appoints his hard-line deputy to purge the city of sexual corruption. But is an iron hand the best answer? What happens when personal passion confronts political policy? And who owns sex anyway?
Justice, morality and gender equality are thrown into the spotlight in this electric take on Shakespeare’s powerful social satire.
