Measure for Measure

Date: 7 Dec 2017

Lizzie Schebesta directs an outdoor production of what is arguably Shakespeare’s most dangerous and topical comedy.

By way of a test, Duke Vincentio of Venice turns over his authority to his law and order-focused deputy, Angelo. The stage is set for an old-fashioned anti-vice campaign. But can Angelo live up to his own standards?

Can anyone?

This Sport for Jove production features actors Gabriel Fancourt, Claudia Ware, George Zhao, Adele Querol, Janine Watson and Yalin Ozucelik.
