Full casting has been announced for Artistic Director Josie Rourke’s production of Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare which plays at the Donmar Warehouse Friday 28 September – Saturday 24 November 2018.
Joining the previously announced Hayley Atwell and Jack Lowden are Ben Allen, Matt Bardock, Nicholas Burns, Jackie Clune, Rachel Denning, Molly Harris, Adam McNamara, Raad Rawi, Sule Rimi, Anwar Russell and Helena Wilson.
Josie Rourke’s production of Measure for Measure imagines the play in its original year of performance, 1604, and also in 2018. Within every performance, Hayley Atwell and Jack Lowden will alternate the roles of the powerful Deputy and the powerless Novice.
The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?
Vienna is corrupt. The Duke, who has let the city fall to vice, hands control to his Deputy, a hardline, puritan reformer.
The Deputy uses ancient laws to sentence citizens to death for sexual misconduct. But when a religious Novice pleads for clemency, their heady encounter leaves the Deputy guilty of the very crime that the law condemns.
The Donmar Warehouse is fully wheelchair accessible. Guide dogs and hearing dogs are welcome in the auditorium. There is an infrared system in the main auditorium and there is also a hearing loop in the box office.
If you require a companion to attend the Donmar, their ticket will be free. To book call 020 3282 3808 or email [email protected]. For all other access enquiries or bookings call 020 3282 3808
