The Complete Works of Shakespeare: Measure For Measure
Shakespeare Dallas and AT&T Performing Arts Center are in the midst of presenting staged readings of every single one of Williams Shakespeare's works over five years. The 32nd in the series will be Measure For Measure.
Injustice, hypocrisy and the question of mercy collide in Shakespeare’s most searching exploration of sexual politics and social justice. In his darkest comedy, Shakespeare tells the tale of aspiring nun, Isabella, who is faced with an impossible choice after her brother is sentenced to death for the crime of “fornication.” When a corrupt deputy propositions her and says she can trade her virginity for her brother’s life Isabella’s decision will have consequences for all.
