Measure for Measure


By William Shakespeare
Directed by Laura Welsh Berg

William Shakespeare's "Measure for Measure" is widely considered to be a "dark" comedy. It follows a young Novemberitiate in Vienna, whose brother is the victim of an unexpected crackdown on an old and largely ignored law. As she attempts to beg for his life, she discovers a judicial system that has more to do with vengeance than justice. The play examines sexual politics through a particularly gendered lens and asks: When faced with corruption of power, how do we fix broken systems? This play contains mature themes. Parental discretion is advised.
