Theatrecorps 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 todays world. Dressed in formal black and white, the actors create the repressive atmosphere of Vienna where sex is allowed only within marriage, after the Dukes 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 scripts comic lines and the darker strains of failure and loss beneath IRISH THEATRE MAGAZINE. ON THE GLASS MENAGERIE National tour
