Modern Measure for Measure from RSC on screen

THE latest production of Shakeaspeare’s Measure for Measure, directed by Gregory Doran, will be beamed around the world by satellite on Wednesday 31st July.

The story is astonishingly resonant today.

A corrupt official visits a young and frightened novice nun, offering to save her beloved brother from execution in return for sexual favours. She has no idea where to turn for help and when she threatens to expose him, he tells her, with confidence, that no one would believe her.

See Measure for Measure by beamed from Stratford-upon-Avon at the McMillian Theatre in Bridgewater or  Bridport Arts Centre at 11am on 31st July, or at 7pm at Christchurch Regent Centre, The Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis, The Gateway at Seaton, Nuffield City in Southampton, Strode Theatre in Street or  The Brewhouse in Taunton, among many venues across the region.
