Event description

Description

Join Columbia NorCal for a preview of Measure For Measure, directed by Tyne Rafaeli '14SOA.

Deceit and duplicity take center stage in Shakespeare’s dark satire that closes out the 2017 Cal Shakes season. Devious new ruler Angelo is turning the city upside down with his puritanical orders: after setting Vienna in a tail spin by closing down all the brothels and declaring ‘fornication’ punishable by death, he lusts after aspiring nun Isabella and hypocritically imprisons her brother, Claudio. Isabella’s faith is put to the test when Angelo gives her an ultimatum: save her brother’s life by giving up her chastity. Desperate times call for a subversive spirit, and Isabella’s virtue faces off against misdeeds of those who claim the weight of the law. Deftly mixing comedy and tragedy, director Tyne Rafaeli wrestles with questions of consent and agency over one’s body (both politic and personal) in this gritty staging of Measure for Measure.

Columbia NorCal will have a pre-show meet and greet with director Tyne Rafaeli. Details forthcoming.

Please note all sales are final and non-refundable. A separate email confirmation will be sent with ticket pick up details the week of the show.
