Key facts

Playwright: William Shakespeare adaptation

Synopsis

In a reimagined 1590, England is a matriarchy.

Baptista Minola is seeking to sell off her son Katherine to the highest bidder. Cue an explosive battle of the sexes in this electrically charged love story.

Justin Audibert turns Shakespeare’s fierce, energetic comedy of gender and materialism on its head to offer a fresh perspective on its portrayal of hierarchy and power.

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 Book now
