Shakespeare's timely tragicomedy about morality and justice in a changing regime.
co-produced with Santa Cruz Shakespeare


O, it is excellent 
To have a giant's strength, but it is tyrannous
To use it like a giant.

-Isabella, Act II, scene ii

Director Tyne Rafaeli wrestles with questions of consent and agency over one’s body (both politic and personal) in this funny and gritty staging of Measure for Measure.

In a sinful city besieged by a new ruler, the puritanical and deceitful Angelo, Claudio is sentenced to death for fornication. Angelo lusts after Claudio’s sister, Isabella—an aspiring nun—and gives her an ultimatum: save her brother’s life by giving up her chastity.

Isabella’s virtue in the face of hypocrisy highlights the misdeeds of those who claim morality and justice, and shows that desperate times call for a subversive spirit.
