Measure (Still) for Measure is an intersectional, feminist adaptation of Shakespeare and Middleton’s “problem play” Measure for Measure. Its aim is to facilitate discussions regarding rape culture and instigate policy change in educational institutions.
This website is a repository for our research and rehearsal process. It is licensed under Creative Commons and is open access. That means you can make use of and adapt anything that you find on this site for your own purposes, as long as you give us credit when you do so.
As the project grows, we hope that this website will become both an archive of our process and a resource for groups looking to adapt Shakespeare themselves.
This site will be continuously updated with new information, images, videos, and links. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, feel free to contact us.
If you want Measure (Still) to come to your school, college/university, or community group for a one-off workshop, if you’d like to create a full-scale production based on this project, or if you have questions about any aspect of the project, please contact Project Facilitator Nora Williams by clicking here.
The project formally began with a research and development (R&D) week in February 2016, made possible by the The Bike Shed Theatre and Exeter City Council.
In the 2016-17 academic year, we collaborated with the Advanced Acting class at Nichols School. More information is available here.
More information about next steps will be available soon!
