This adaptation of Shakespeare’s most complex comedy combines original verse with new text. Measure for Measure becomes Gravel Heart, a modern love story that grapples with prejudice and puritanism. Against a backdrop of corporate greed, Angelo and Isabella are drawn together in a fight for justice.
Richard Vincent has written for theatre, film, TV and radio. Richard teaches improvisation at Mountview and has previously directed Days of Significance, We Happy Few and Grace.
Gravel Heart has been commissioned by Mountview as part of Made at Mountview and is adapted from William Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure by Richard Vincent.
Duration: 1 hour 45 minutes (no interval)
