SIN AND VIRTUE: Shakespeare's MEASURE FOR MEASURE and CYMBELINE

Description
Join our Acting and Musical Theatre students as they engage with two of Shakespeare's most dizzying plays. This year we invite you to an evening of Shakespeare's SIN AND VIRTUE: MEASURE FOR MEASURE and CYMBELINE.

MEASURE FOR MEASURE:
In one of Shakespeare’s most enigmatic plays, Machiavellian force, fraud, and spectacle are put on full display.
Conventionally described as a “problem play,” Measure for Measure begins as a tragedy, but halfway through it becomes a comedy. Shakespeare’s plays, especially the problem plays, are mirrors held up to the audience; and Measure for Measure is his most deliberately contrived. Its title refers to the Sermon on the Mount: “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again” (Matt. 7:1-2)

Featuring the Level 2 BA (Hons) Acting programme in collaboration with the School of Contemporary Music, BA (Hons) Fashion Design and Textiles, Diploma in Audio Production and Technical and Production Management.

DATE: 23, 25, and 27 February at 8pm.
Director: Adam Marple
VENUE: Singapore Airlines Theatre, LASALLE College of the Arts, 1 McNally Street
(run time approximately 2 hours 15 minutes, including intermission)



CYMBELINE: Historical-pastoral-tragical-comical and fantastical, Cymbeline boasts some of Shakespeare’s greatest poetry and enduring characters mixed together in a plot that changes genre as often as its scenery.
One of the most joyous plays, after complicating everything possible, Shakespeare piles joy upon joy in the final act to ensure that a happy ending is hammered home. In Cymbeline, Shakespeare simply had fun, pleasing himself and us as well.
