Measure for Measure

Written by Shakespeare
Directed by Caryl Farkas

The 2019 theme for the International Shakespeare Center is Questions of Honor, with performances of two of Shakespeare’s greatest plays, each one exploring what honor means and its importance to different people: Part One of King Henry the Fourth and Measure for Measure. They play on alternate nights with the same repertory cast.

Measure for Measure: A young nun must choose between forced sex with the cruel and hypocritical Angelo or the execution of her beloved brother. Issues of honor, mercy, justice, and much hypocrisy and pretense are explored.
