Measure for Measure
by William Shakespeare
February 17 - March 11, 2006
Directed by
Ryan Whinnem

Ryan Whinnem uses Shakespeare's text and gender swapping to explore contemporary issues of morality.  Gay marriage, equal rights, unchecked political power, responsibility....  Plus spanking! 

Duke Vicentio, concerned that he has grown too soft, temporarily leaves his duchy to the strict Angela.  Angela's first order of business is to strictly enforce the laws, and sentences Claudio to death for having sex outside of marriage.  Claudio begs his sister Isabella, a nun, to plead for mercy from Angela.  But instead, Angela propositions Isabella:  Claudio will be spared, but only if you sleep with me.  What will Isabella decide?  How do they all get out of this predicament?  One of Shakespeare's lesser known comedies, the end is sure to intrigue you....  Running Time: 1 hr, 52 mins
