William Shakespeare

RSC: Measure for Measure

RSC: Мера за меру

In the Royal Shakespeare theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, Gregory Doran assured production offers a perfectly judged portrait of public hypocrisy and seething sexuality.

Joseph Arkley’s Lucio is a dapper seducer who might have stepped out of a Schnitzler novella and Claire Price’s gender-switched Escalus becomes the embodiment of rectitude in a corrupt society. Sandy Grierson’s Angelo is a figure filled with Freudian repression who secretly scourges himself, while Lucy Phelps’s Isabella is a woman of determined reason and implacable faith who, at one point, forces Angelo to join her in prayer.
