Theatrecorp’s seventh classic production
is a tight, visceral ensemble version of
Measure For Measure.
This play, rarely seen in the West of
Ireland, has sharp parallels with today’s
world. Dressed in formal black and
white, the actors create the repressive
atmosphere of Vienna where sex is
allowed only within marriage, after the
Duke’s deputy re-establishes a law, and
condemns a young nobleman to death
who has made his fiancee pregnant.
Theatrecorp has been performing World
Classics in Galway and on tour since
2004. Productions of Faustus, Waiting
For Godot, Blood Wedding, The Maids, The
Human Voice and The Glass Menagerie
have received great acclaim.
“The cast demonstrates fine ensemble work; they tread the fine line between the script’s comic lines and the darker strains of failure and loss beneath” IRISH THEATRE MAGAZINE. ON THE
GLASS MENAGERIE National tour
“Director Max Hafler and
his stripped-down staging
and cast tell this story with
relentless innovation” IRISH THEATRE MAGAZINE ON BLOOD WEDDING
