“Who will believe thee, Isabel?”
'MEasure 2 Measure' is a stripped down, one-act version of Shakespeare’s play, with just 3 characters instead of the usual 13. This adaptation, which largely uses the original text, focuses on the #MeToo-like theme at the centre of the story, without Shakespeare’s usual pantomime elements or get-out clauses. It has strong echoes of recent cases heard in both the courts and the media.
With a radical shift in the plot, it enables us to see more clearly the consequences of people’s actions, and looks anew at the choices they make. In doing so, it dramatically highlights the consequences of political and personal abuse.
Adapted and directed by Sam Chittenden, award-winning writer of Clean! The Musical and Sary. With Catie Ridewood, Mickey Knighton and Harry Freeman.
