‘TO WHOM SHOULD I COMPLAIN?’

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.

 

Venue: Lyric Theatre
