Buy a Groundlings pass for admission to Measure for Measure and two other college Shakespeare plays!
By William Shakespeare | Directed by Mark E. Lococo
In the moral universe of Shakespeare’s Vienna, “some rise by sin and some by virtue fall.” This is the setting of Shakespeare’s unconventional comedy of ethics, sexuality, and deception. When strict judge Angelo, placed in authority by the Duke in an attempt to strengthen a lax moral code, deems Claudio’s marriage illegal and throws him in prison, it’s up to the prisoner’s virtuous sister, Isabella, to barter for her brother’s life. In the face of Angelo’s hypocrisy, Isabella seeks a way to expose the corrupt substitute ruler and save her innocent brother.
Measure for Measure arrives at Loyola this spring as part of a collaborative Shakespeare celebration with Bradley University and Western Illinois University which will feature three of the Bard’s works.
Measure for Measure is part of our 2011-2012 Mainstage Theater Season.
