Measure for Measure: To whom should I complain?

Thursday 8 August, 5 - 6.15pm

Shakespeare wrote about human nature, allowing his work to reflect communities and events throughout history. Measure for Measure is set in a society where straitlaced, buttoned up conservatism rubs against more liberated, uninhibited ways of thinking. A woman is compromised by a man in authority. When she threatens to expose him, he tells her that no one will believe her. “To whom should I complain?” she asks.
