Shakespeare Festival | Measure for Measure

Shakespeare Festival | Measure for Measure

“Some rise by sin and others by virtue fall.”

Free outdoor Shakespeare returns with political tragicomedy "Measure for Measure". What happens when corruption reaches the highest level of court? Explore the price of principle, and witness what happens when the law is bent by those who serve to uphold it. A duke in disguise leaves the fate of his people in the hands of a ruthless judge. A loyal sister is faced with an important decision: save the life of her brother, or uphold her honor? Join us for Shakespeare’s timeless tale of deception, virtue, and honor, and decide for yourself whether justice is served.

This show centers arounds themes of sexuality and depicts a scene in which a person in a position of power takes advantage of someone underneath their rank. Therefore, this play is recommended for ages 13 and older with the advisory of a parent.

This performance is on the lawn behind the library. For your comfort, bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. In case of inclement weather, the performance will be in the large meeting room.
