Vincentio played by Mark Rylance
Measure For Measure (2004)
Written by: William Shakespeare
Mark Rylance returned to the Globe to play Vincentio in the 2004 production of Measure For Measure.
In his final blog post, Mark discusses the risks involved in playing Measure for Measure as a comedy, the lengths to which the production has tried to make the story clear to the audience, and how he now feels about Act V.
In his second blog post Mark discusses the challenge of making the play's action seem spontaneous, the problems of putting the separate scenes together and decisions he's made since last week.
This is Mark's first blog post for the 2004 production of Measure for Measure. This week he discusses how he came to play the Duke, his preparations for the role and his experience of working with Master of Play John Dove.
