Background


Vienna, Nevada. 2019. A woman makes a claim of sexual assault against a powerful judge – but who will believe her?

Measure for Measure echoes powerfully in the present political moment. Adopting two different ‘takes’ – one played by an all-female company, the other cast according to the gender of the original text – our production will examine Shakespeare’s great ‘problem comedy’ faithfully, but from a contemporary angle.

Background


These lively workshop performances showcase the talents of the students from Rutgers Conservatory at Shakespeare’s Globe, our flagship conservatory training programme.

BFA and MFA Acting majors from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, embark on intensive classical training at the Globe for most of their third (junior) year.
