A new production of Measure for Measure will be performed at the Barbican as part of the Royal Shakespeare company’s newest season. Although the Shakespearean tale was last staged at the Donmar Warehouse in 2018, you won’t want to miss out on this fiery story with corrupt individuals at the core. So, if you want to see a Shakespearean play that’s true to its original performance style, you’ll want to see Measure for Measure.

When a novice nun is compromised by a corrupt official who offers to save her brother from execution in return for sex, she has no idea where to turn for help. When she threatens to expose him, he tells her that nobody would believe her. Guilt, accountability and the law are at the heart of Measure for Measure, where the story and themes carry a new sense of urgency.

Measure for Measure isn’t the only RSC show to be performed at the Barbican this year. As part of the season, audiences can also watch As You Like It and The Taming of the Shrew from October to January 2020. But, if you’re wanting to see a politically urgent play, you’ll have to book tickets for Measure for Measure.

It is believed that William Shakespeare wrote Measure for Measure in 1604.
