RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran directs this new production of Measure for Measure

Review this show


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

A Mirror For Our Times

· Londonist

The play-off between morals and power is hardly tested beyond a superficial level. It feels distinctly behind the times

· The Arts Desk

It has an admirable clarity and precision, and a coolness that points up male authority’s indifference to female suffering.

· The Times

Ravishing but safe RSC take on Shakespeare’s play about sex, power and surveillance in the Viennese court

· Time Out

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

· The Stage (Stratford run)

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

· The Guardian (Stratford run)

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

· WhatsOnStage (Stratford run)

A compelling production

· Broadway World

The production is to-the-point and the actors do well but never fully arrest the audience’s attention
