Measure for Measure - Jack Studio Theatre
IMMERSION Theatre is presenting William Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure at the Jack Studio Theatre – from Tuesday, July 2 to Saturday, July 20, 2013.
A city on the brink of self-destruction. Brothels flourish, corruption is the only currency, and vice reigns in a city where incompetent leadership has handed power to the masses and is now powerless to stop the spread of immorality.
The powers that-be turn to the seemingly righteous Angelo, desperate for order to be restored. However, a danger of a very different kind is about to terrorise the city when appearances prove to be deceptive and power falls into the wrong hands.
Following their Off West End-nominated production of Julius Caesar, Immersion Theatre return to the Jack Studio Theatre to present one of Shakespeare’s darkest comedies in their unique and gritty style.
James Tobais directs a cast that includes Brian Merry (Duke), Rochelle Parry (Isabella), Greg Simpson (Angelo), James Clifford (Lucio), Clive Keene (Claudio), Georgina Panton (Mistress Overdone), Linda Taimre (Escala), Grace Lyons Hudson (Juliet), Rob Taylor-Hastings (Pompey), Jess Mack (Mariana) and Adam Cunis (Provost).
Assistant director is Amy Gunn, movement director Jess Mack and lighting designer Peter Fennell.
Tickets: £13, £10 concessions – available from the box office on 0844 8700 887 or online at www.brockleyjack.co.uk/.
Times: Tuesday to Saturday at 7.45pm.
