MEASURE FOR MEASURE

by William Shakespeare

Directed by Raquel Chavez & Beth Ann Hopkins

A growing feminist liberation movement raging against the oppressive patriarchal status quo takes Vienna by storm. After a sudden regime change, the conservatives newly in power react aggressively, invoking antiquated morality laws to strip their constituents of bodily autonomy and quell the resistance. Isabella is radicalized after seeing her brother Claudio and his lover Juliet among the first incarcerated in the crackdown. She hatches a plan to rebel against the oppressive campaign led by Angelo, the Duke’s deputy, but will have to decide: Can peace be wrought without justice?

Smith Street Stage seeks to tell classic stories in new ways through affordable, exciting and consequential theater arts. The Company holds that universally recognizable and deeply human conflicts inhere in great literature, and by exploring such texts with rigor and creativity, one may apprehend these truths and reveal anew their relevance to our lives. Such stories presented skillfully and earnestly have the power to engage philosophical issues, excite spectators of all backgrounds and predispositions, and bring communities closer. http://www.smithstreetstage.org
