An interpretation of WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE's 'MEASURE FOR MEASURE', set In Melbourne's notorious commission flats, that provide the setting for an exploration of love, loyalty and justice. "Measure for Measure" follows the disparate lives of inhabitants of a housing commission whose paths cross after a shocking event occurs on their doorstep. Claudio (Harrison Gilbertson) is an aspiring musician with a tough upbringing and penchant for dope, while Jaiwara (Megan Hajjar) is a university student from an immigrant family. Hugo Weaving (The Matrix, V For Vendetta, Lords of the Rings Trilogy) plays Duke, an ageing crime lord trying to ensure business continues as usual. Themes of justice, loyalty, love and revenge run through this moody contemporary retelling of an iconic play.
