LAMDA: Measure for Measure

LAMDA | Drama

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by David Mercatali
Performed at The Sainsbury Theatre

Defying categorisation as a comedy, tragedy or history, Measure for Measure is one of the Bard’s great ‘problem’ plays. A darkly comedic study of morals, power trips and justice in disguise.

Believed to have been written in 1603 or 1604 and originally published in the First Folio of 1623 where it was listed as a comedy, Measure for Measure’s continuing popularity lies in the balance Shakespeare successfully strikes between black humour and raw tragedy.

This production contains adult themes. This production is also ideal for students.
