Royal Shakespeare Company: Measure for Measure

This event has passed


When a young 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 no one would believe her.

Shakespeare wrote this play in the early 1600s, yet it remains astonishingly resonant today.
RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran directs this new production.

Direct from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, the Royal Shakespeare Company returns to the Lowry with a season of exhilarating Shakespeare plays bursting with contemporary resonance.

Join us for one, join us for all. It’s going to be quite a season.



‘This fresh, insightful version of a morally murky play finds the RSC on flying form’

The Mail On Sunday

‘Excitingly simple and vivid…a luminous clarity’

The Times

‘A perfectly judged portrait of public hypocrisy and seething sexuality’

The Guardian

‘Excellent…a rolling mass of desire, repression and duplicity’

Financial Times
