Measure for Measure
directed by Jennie Israel
Vienna has fallen into disarray and debauchery– and the Duke has left the city! Will the strict Lord Angelo be able to clean up the city in the Duke’s absence? Will the city’s pimps and mistresses escape arrest from a band of silly, overzealous law enforcement? Can a noble nun and the disguised Duke work for good to save an innocent man and reexamine the meaning of true justice? William Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure tells a dissonant tale of the virtue of mercy, the absurdity of ineffective law, and the inner-demons that lurk under the veil of righteousness.
