Shakespeare set this darkest of comedies in Vienna to cloak a scathing critique of hypocrisy in the corrupt authority of his own London. Purity and mercy do win out in the end, but not before audiences are treated to the lighter side of depravity in a 'riotously enjoyable' (The Independent) 'crowd-pleasing saucy romp' (Evening Standard). In this, his Globe Theatre farewell, director Dominic Dromgoole's 'buoyant production' (Guardian) casts a Mariah Gale 'so centred and self-possessed that Isabella's conviction seems to reach every corner of the house without once turning cloying' (New York Times).
