‘Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall...’

When the mysterious Duke disappears, leaving his deputy Lord Angelo in charge, an immoral and unruly Vienna feels the full force of the law, resulting in both comic and tragic consequences. 

An explosive re-imagining of Shakespeare’s play about politics, sex, justice and mercy, by our very own third year Theatre Arts Shakespeare in Performance students. 

When you see ‘Theatre Works’, you may be seeing work from undergraduates, post-graduates, professional partnerships, or members of the local community. Those who have seen our previous shows, such as Angela’s Ashes and Welcome to Thebes, will know that the work is often original, aspirational and innovative.
