The Donmar's Measure for Measure extends run until December 1, 2018

Theatre news

DUE to exceptional demand Measure for Measure has extended its runs at the Donmar Warehouse. Originally booking until November 24, it will now continue until Saturday, December 1, 2018.

Friday, November 30 will be a performance dedicated solely to YOUNG+FREE audiences aged 25 and under, enabling even more young audiences the opportunity to experience Shakespeare’s exploration of sex and power.

YOUNG+FREE is funded through the generosity of audiences via the Donmar’s PAY IT FORWARD scheme. These donations have allowed the Donmar to allocate more than 12,000 free tickets to those aged 25 and under since the scheme began.

Tickets to the YOUNG+FREE Friday performance will be allocated by ballot at the end of October. The ballot is now open for entries by signing up to the YOUNG+FREE mailing list at

Josie Rourke’s production of Measure for Measure imagines the play in its original year of performance, 1604, and also in 2018. Within every performance, Hayley Atwell and Jack Lowden will alternate the roles of the powerful Deputy and the powerless Novice.

The cast also includes Ben Allen, Matt Bardock, Nicholas Burns, Jackie Clune, Rachel Denning, Molly Harris, Adam McNamara, Raad Rawi, Sule Rimi, Anwar Russell and Helena Wilson.
