Measure for Measure
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Amy Seham
November 8-10 at 8:00pm | November 11 at 2:00pm
Anderson Theatre

Shakespeare's intriguing dark comedy takes on new meaning in light of today's #MeToo movement. Isabella, a novice nun, pleads with government official Angelo to spare her brother from execution. The powerful man agrees to help—but only if Isabella will sleep with him. When Isabella protests, saying she will proclaim his corruption to the world, Angelo smoothly replies, "Who will believe thee, Isabel?" It takes an evening full of comedy, tricks, and disguises before Isabel can bring Angelo to justice. Guest artist Anne Sawyer lends her genius with puppetry to the creation of a host of vivid, entertaining characters who manipulate and are manipulated in this remarkably modern classic.
