World renowned director Declan Donnellan brings his signature visceral, unflinching style to Measure For Measure in collaboration with Moscow's Pushkin Theatre and London's Cheek by Jowl. Shakespeare's great, political epic asks vital and unsettling questions about how we are governed and, in the process, unmasks the true nature of authority, love and justice. Performed in Russian with English surtitles, experience Shakespeare’s tale in a ripped-from-the-headlines context that is as shocking as it is revelatory.
This edge-of-your-seat production has been hailed as ‘a real thriller, piercing the heart of the entire audience’’ (Mir24) ‘a shattering portrait of contemporary Russia’ (Novaya Gazeta) and received high praise for moving "like wildfire" and "hitting the bull's-eye." (Chicago Tribune).
