About this show

In Measure for Measure Shakespeare turns his gaze on governance, justice, and virtue. The novitiate Isabella must choose between sacrificing her brother's life or her virginity to the duke, Angelo. Questions of forgiveness and the possibility of redemption are raised in a most provocative way, as Shakespeare tests whether innate goodness can survive even the most dire of ethical dilemmas. Directed by Beatrice Terry.
