Hip to Hip Theatre: Measure for Measure
SUNDAY AUGUST 13, 2017
Kids & The Classics | 4:30 PM
Performance: MEASURE FOR MEASURE | 5 – 6:30 PM
The Duke of Vienna’s puritanical deputy Angelo, tasked with cleaning up a city out of control, revives ancient laws regarding sex and marriage. When he unjustly sentences the young gentleman Claudio to death, Claudio’s sister Isabella pleads his case…and discovers that Angelo is not as virtuous as he seems. Shakespeare’s dark comedy examines the danger of placing power in the wrong hands.
