The First 2012 Dramat Fall Ex
Measure for Measure is Shakespeare’s most provocative and paranoiac play, a portrait of a city in turmoil thanks to its citizens’ unruly desires and its rulers’ oppressive hypocrisy. When the Duke of Vienna turns over his authority to his strict and severe deputy, a young woman on the cusp of entering a convent must challenge the powers-that-be to save her brother’s life. A panoply of comedic characters from Vienna’s underbelly round out this vivid, voluptuous, politically-charged morality tale.
The Dramat is proud to present a remarkable Shakespearean thriller about characters who live and die at the intersection of power, lust, and mercy.
