Watch a live streamed performance of a powerful and darkly comic new production of Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, direct from our Sam Wanamaker Playhouse on 7 January 2022.

When the government starts policing the free expression of sexual desire, Isabel is drawn from the safe space of her convent to rescue her brother from death under the new laws.

Only his freedom comes at a price. Her.

In a hypersexualised, politically polarised society, morality is messy and principles are compromised. What would you be willing to lose in the fight for justice?

Director Blanche McIntyre presents Shakespeare’s play from the perspective of Isabel, told with thrilling suspense and remarkable resonance.

‘To whom should I complain?…
Who would believe me?’

– Act II, scene 4
