Mirror of Modern Society, Shakespeare’s Classic Measure for Measure

Shakespeare’s classic becomes a mirror of modern society in a dexterously crafted adaption from director Declan Donnellan, English theater company Cheek by Jowl, and Pushkin Theatre Moscow. With a unique brew of humor and high seriousness, the story dissects the nature of justice, mercy, and virtue—asking unsettling questions about how we are governed and the relationships between those in power, and those not.
