The law hath not been dead, though it hath slept.

Overview

Vincentio, Duke of Vienna, disgusted by the immorality in his city, announces his withdrawal from public life and leaves his deputy, the puritanical Angelo, in charge. Angelo, in his zeal for observing the letter of the law, begins a ruthless programme to stamp out sexual licence, in the course of which he condemns one Claudio to death. Surely Claudio’s virginal sister Isabella, a novice nun seeking mercy for her brother, could not awake the lust of this cold, censorious man?

Injustice, hypocrisy and the challenge of inflexible virtue combine in Shakespeare’s most searching exploration of sexual politics and social justice.

Critic reviews

Dominic Dromgoole shows all his experience in his final production in the Globe's outdoor space... Mariah Gale is an outstanding Isabella.

· The Sunday Times

Irrepressively lively... manages to make instantaneous shifts between uproarious bawdy and theatre-hushing seriousness.

· The Independent

Rich, messy and human... Mariah Gale gives a performance of delicacy and force as Isabella... As the Duke, Dominic Rowan milks the comedy from the scenes where his character is disguised as a friar, but he also brings a moral intricacy to the role.

· The Stage

A production that gives us light as well as shade...Dromgoole’s production really sings.
