Measure for Measure

(Date TBC)
Following the critically acclaimed Pawno, director Paul Ireland moves from Footscray to Prahran’s commission flats for this contemporary re-interpretation of Shakespeare, with AACTA winner Hugo Weaving leading a powerful cast.

Reimagining the Bard’s play about morality, mercy and justice, Ireland and his co-writer, the late Damian Hill (West of Sunshine) have crafted a topical tale about an unlikely bond between a modern Muslim woman Jaiwara (Megan Smart) and a local musician, set amongst the background of racial tension, amphetamines and gang culture.

Influenced by the gritty realism of films like Amores Perros, the social conscience of Fishtank and dynamic aesthetic of Un Prophete, MEASURE FOR MEASURE questions the notion of justice, the ability for redemption and the desire for power.
