Get ready for CAST's mesmerizing Measure for Measure. Now in its 14th year, the Cambridge University American Stage Tour (CAST) will once again be taking a company of Cambridge's most talented actors, directors, producers and technicians to universities, high schools and professional theatres across the USA. Stylish, intoxicating, hilarious and tragic by turn, this production will hurl you head first into modern day Vienna with vigour and passion. With a timeless aesthetic inspired by cinematic icons ranging from Fellini to Tarantino, it will be a whirlwind of political corruption, gender subversion, sex and scandal, justice and mercy...

"Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall."

The law no longer has any hold over the citizens of Vienna. Duke Vincentio's lax leadership has left everyone, including the government officials themselves, to their own devices. The sex trade has taken over the shadier pockets of society. The brittle Angelo is left in charge, but the disguised Duke has in fact stayed in the city to keep an eye on his deputy. Angelo assumes power with relentless spite: oppression and fear reign. But, after meeting the enchantingly wilful Isabella - the sister of imprisoned Claudio - he can't adhere to his own rules. Deceit, hypocrisy and scandal spiral out of control until a final effort for resolution and order makes us question what order really is…
