Measure for Measure

What's On - Events Calendar for Devon and the surrounding area of Devon
22nd March - 1st April 2017 ** EVENT ENDED **
Overview: William Shakespeare - Directed by Alistair Ganley

CYGNET is passionate about Shakespeare and strives to create accessible and relevant productions which value the text and draw out the drama and themes from the plays.

TEENAGE PREGNANCY, PROSTITUTION, CRIMINALITY

In Vienna strict codes of behaviour have not been enforced by those in power for a generation and moral laxity is rife. What will it take for the Viennese authorities to regain control of the public morality and at what cost?

Angelo, the new Deputy of Vienna, decides to face the problem head-on by invoking an ancient law which demands the death penalty for unmarried men who sleep with their girlfriends.

Claudio is one such who is about to marry his fiance but THAT is not good enough for Angelo, who insists on the law being carried out. When Isabella, Claudios sister, a young nun who has made a vow of chastity comes to beg for mercy for her brothers life, Angelo is disturbed by his attraction to this virtuous young girl and offers her a bargain: to sleep with him in return for her brothers life.
Meanwhile in the background, the real Duke is watching over all the proceedings ready to step in at the last minute to sort out the moral maze.

Cygnets new ensemble production of Shakespeares provocative dark comedy explores the line between public and private morality, faith, duty, power and hypocrisy.

Now, more than ever Measure for Measure has a theme for today.
