By William Shakespeare
Pushkin Theatre / Cheek by Jowl
Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod

 

A new leader in Vienna polices his people’s every impulse. Social control is exercised through shame and terror. What’s left of morality when privacy disappears? Amid the paranoid mobsters, crooked politicians, and seedy backrooms of the city, a fervent novice nun must face the ultimate test of her faith when a vicious politician offers to save her brother’s life in exchange for her virtue. This acclaimed collaboration between London’s Cheek by Jowl and Moscow’s Pushkin Theatre propels one of Shakespeare’s “problem plays” into a timely juggernaut of political critique, thanks to director Declan Donnellan’s brisk modernist staging, design by Nick Ormerod, and a stellar ensemble cast.
