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.

£10 (evening performances) /£8 (matinee)

The RSC Open Stages is the UK’s biggest amateur project. Having received over 150 applications across the UK, the RSC along with six partner theatres will work with the ninety selected amateur groups to support and help them to create their own RSC Open Stages productions in their own venues. Each amateur company will receive training, director mentoring, feedback and support, with the aim of transforming the relationship between amateur and professional theatre.

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.
