Desperate Measures

Tue, 24th November - Sun, 20th December

For our Christmas show this year we welcome back Banter Productions with the world premiere of this new musical by Robin Kingsland and Chris Barton, based on Shakespeare’s Measure For Measure. “I’m sorry Prime Minister, but keeping your hands clean can be a very dirty business…” Drama and satire abound in equal measure, to a score that combines contemporary song with 60s nostalgia to delightful and surprising effect.
