“Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall.”

Behind the shiny exterior of Measured Investments is a den of depravity fuelled by a cocktail of drugs, prostitution and most significantly power. In an effort to clean up his company, CEO Vincentio, has handed over to his deputy, but Angelo’s purintanical rule is not as virtuous as he would like it to appear.

Contrasting dark scenes with explosive comedy between drunken bawds and incompetent police officers, Shakespeare’s most intricate problem play Measure for Measure explores manipulation and control. In a new setting this production gives rise to questions about morality and consent in today’s corporate world.
