Event description
Truth be truth to th’ end of reck’ning

About this Event

Performed by second year drama and theatre students.

A reconsidering of William Shakespeare's Measure for Measure.

The students have just returned from a secular pilgrimage to Auschwitz and they now ask themselves "how will we remember when all the witnesses are gone?".

Truth be truth to th' end of reck'ning will be composed of fragmented images, snatched conversations, half remembered events - in an attempt to make sense of it all.

We live in a fake news world where truth, love and hope is bought and sold, for profit. We live in a world where we have been taught to hate the other, for profit. We know where this path leads...

We want to live in a world where we don't sell our sisters (& brothers) for our own gain.

Truth be truth to th' end of reck'ning will as us when is enough - enough?

Where can we stand in resistance to the hatred of the other?
