Some of the critical responses to National Theatre and Complicite's co-production of Measure for Measure.
"Simon McBurney emphatically makes this a play for today." -- Daily Telegraph
"I can't remember when I was last so shocked, startled or disturbed by Shakespeare... Simon McBurney has taken this bemusing problem drama, in which sex, justice, and mercy are caught in a complex triangular engagement, and shone a dark, revelatory light on it... Mesmerising." -- Evening Standard
"The richest, most serious staging of Measure for Measure that London has seen for over 10 years." -- Financial Times
