Measure for Measure is Shakespeare’s complicated story of virtue vs vice. His city caught in a moral free-fall, the Duke of Vienna hands over power to Lord Angelo, who enforces long-dormant codes of chastity with zealous fervor. When a pious young nun pleads for the life of her condemned brother, Angelo’s response is surprisingly sensual. Measure for Measure explores the themes of power corrupting, men in power taking advantage of women, and the dangers of any extremist view. It is a timeless and timely reminder that the #metoo movement was long overdue.
