Overview

A play written by Shakespeare in the early 1600s but whose story and themes feel even more urgent today.

When a 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 that nobody would believe her.

In 2017 Gregory Doran directed a spellbinding adaptation of The Tempest at the Barbican.

Critic reviews

Punchy but often oppressively bleak take on Shakespeare’s problematic problem play

The Stage

Gregory Doran’s assured production offers a perfectly judged portrait of public hypocrisy and seething sexuality

The Guardian

Contemporary resonances in a lucid production

The Times

Of the trio in repertory, Measure for Measure may be the least performed, but on this showing it's far from the weak link of the season
