WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Simon McBurney directs Shakespeare's Measure for Measure in a collaboration between the National Theatre and Complicite, part of the Travelex £10 Season. What happens when a Duke hands over his power to his second-in-command and wanders the streets in disguise to watch as events unfold? What if that second-in-command pursues his obsession to purify society of sexual corruption, yet finds himself caught up in his own erotic dream? And what if a young man finds himself condemned to death for fornication, the price of his life is his sister's virginity, and his sister is a nun?
