Find the best Measure for Measure (LGBT Version) - Remember the Clause Season play tickets at Courtyard Theatre, Inner London. An LGBT version which swaps genders and sexualities of characters. In a dark and sinful city, where fear prevails, no one is safe - not even those who have given their lives to God. Isabella is a novice nun, committed to her vows of chastity. Claudio her brother enjoys the company of prostitutes and pleasures of the flesh. In a city where vice is rife, Duke Vincentio has lost control and disappears from public life leaving his cousin Angelo to rule in his place. Angelo begins by reinstating old laws long forgotten...laws that condemn those to death for having sex outside of marriage. It is not long before Claudio is caught. When Claudio summons Isabella to his aid however, Angelo himself is tempted to fall and presents Isabella with an impossible choice; perpetual damnation or her brother's life? On 24th May 1988 Margaret Thatcher's conservative government implemented Section 28, a local authority clause set in UK Law that banned the right to "promote homosexuality or publish material with the intention of promoting homosexuality." It also outlawed "the teaching in any maintained school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship." As part of the Pride Festival 2018, All or Nothing Repertory Theatre Company's first season aims to highlight the 30 year anniversary of this terrible law. Part of the Pride Festival
