Cheek By Jowl’s Measure for Measure, which runs at the Barbican next month, will be live-streamed for free on April 22.

The production, which runs at the Barbican from April 15 to 25 ahead of a run at the Oxford Playhouse, will be streamed live on Cheek By Jowl’s website, as well as on The Telegraph website and at Warwick Arts Centre.

The performance is in Russian with English subtitles and is directed by Cheek By Jowl artistic director Declan Donnellan. Donnellan co-founded the company with Nick Ormerod, who has designed the production.

Measure for Measure is produced by Cheek By Jowl and the Pushkin Theatre in Moscow, with the Barbican, Les Gemeaux/Sceaux/Scene Nationale in Paris and Centro Dramatico Nacional in Madrid.
