Past Performances

2008M4MPosterDirected by Simon Pell

Summer 2008

The second Castle Players production of Measure for Measure saw a large cast of pimps and prostitutes incarcerated in an on-stage prison. 

Former regular Andrew Stainthorpe returned from London for his second cameo performance, this time playing the drunken Barnardine after his success as 'King of the Sandwich Board' in 'Two Gents'.

"The magnificent set, splendid costumes and hugely credible performances by the cast created an atmosphere of utter enjoyment for an audience of all ages. Bravo!"

Ursula Aggio, audience member
