Shakespeare on Draught Presents: Measure for Measure
April 23, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, Shakespeare on Draught will be performing on a TUESDAY. Why? BECAUSE THAT’S SHAKESPEARE’S BIRTHDAY (probably, you can Google it). We’ll be hosting a birthday party for good ol’ Will featuring cake, trivia, goodies, and more, followed by a performance of MEASURE FOR MEASURE, marking Shakespeare on Draught’s eleventh production!
The party will begin at 7:00, and the show begins at 8:00!
When the duke steps down from her post to go undercover and learn more about her people, she leaves the virtuous Angelo to rule in her place. He reigns with an iron fist, and when he sentences Claudio to die for impregnating his almost-wife, Claudio asks for his sister and almost-nun Isabella to go to Angelo to plead the case. Angelo falls for Isabella and offers her a deal: her brother’s life in exchange for her body. Still painfully relevant, MEASURE FOR MEASURE explores truth, justice, and the impossibilities of womanhood with honesty and humor.
HOW TO ATTEND:
Admission is free! Just show up! We do ask that attendees make a pay-what-you-can donation to keep this crazy company afloat. There will be receptacles for cash donations or you can donate by card through us on Square or through Orpheus’s system on the night of the show. Want to donate RIGHT NOW? You can do that! Go to paypal.me/shakespeareondraught and make our day!
