The Hipgnosis Theatre Company presents this production of Measure for Measure, focusing on the all-too-human drama underlying this rancorous, acidic comedy. A contemporary setting focuses this production around all-too-present concerns: why does freedom frighten us? Why do we long for security, and leadership, in a world that can never promise either? Measure for Measure is as fresh, insightful, funny and troubling today as it was four hundred years ago. John Castro directs.
