Measure for Measure is one of Shakespeare’s darker comedies thought to have been written at the height of his career just before a string of classic tragedies which include Othello, King Lear and Macbeth. What follows is a struggle for justice and vindication in the face of extraordinary abuses of power and authority which seem torn from the headlines of our present day newscasts.
