Measure for Measure


Measure for Measure

Performance Date: 19 Mar 2019 - 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

The Glasgow University Shakespeare Society is proud to present Measure for Measure. In Vienna, Duke Vincentio has left on matters of state, leaving his puritanical Deputy Angelo in charge. Angelo immediately enforces laws banning all sin and sentences Claudio to execution for conceiving a child with his fiancé before they are married. But when Claudio’s sister Isabella goes to petition Angelo for her brother’s release, she is surprised to find the pious zealot lusting after her and offering her brother’s life in exchange for her body. Can she find a way to save her brother without surrendering herself? Perhaps, with the help of Angelo’s jilted fiancé, a bawd mistress and a strangely mysterious Friar.

 Set against a backdrop of puritanical tyranny, in a time where we are very much feeling the after effects of similar upheaval, this dark comedy (some might say the original dark comedy) brings Shakespeare’s notorious ‘Problem Play into a new era, examining it against the backdrop of Me Too and the continuing fight for female empowerment.

Performances are on the 19th and 20th of March, doors open at 7.00pm for a 7.30 start. Tickets are £8, £7 for Concessions (including £1.50 booking fee which is applicable on all tickets including those bought on the day and on the phone).
