‘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. 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 Theatre Royal with a season of exhilarating Shakespeare plays bursting with contemporary resonance.

Opening the season is Shakespeare’s dark comedy, Measure for Measure. Directed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran, this intense and compelling production is shockingly relevant for today. Following this, an imaginative new take on Shakespeare’s riotous comedy As You Like It, directed by Kimberley Sykes. Come on a journey of laughter, romance and self-discovery and completing the season is The Taming of The Shrew, directed by Justin Audibert, the ultimate battle of the sexes is turned on its head in a fresh portrayal of gender politics.


A pre-show talk #MeToo and Measure For Measure takes place on Wednesday 26 February, 6.30pm - 7.30pm.

Part of the Celebrating Shakespeare Festival. Please scroll down for more events.
