The Night Shift presents Shakespeare's MEASURE FOR MEASURE

This production is sponsored by Shakespeareances.com.
Corruption, class warfare, and sexual violence all come to a head when an overzealous ruler assumes authority, vowing to clean up the streets with law and order. Shakespeares satirical classic asks how far weve gone and how far were willing to go all in the name of justice.
When Duke Vincentio unexpectedly hands over his power as the ruler of Vienna to his deputy, Lord Angelo, the city suddenly turns to broken windows policing under the new commander in chief. Soon after, the young Claudio is sentenced to death for the crime of getting too hot and heavy with his fiancée before marriage. Only his sister, the chaste and fierce Isabella, can convince Angelo to spare her brotherbut to do so she must choose between her brother's mortal life, or her own immortal soul.
Measure for Measure is directed by Jonathan Minton. Cast includes Margaret Catov, Chris Alexey Diaz, Colin B Gold, Tom Harney, Laura Kay, Brian Nemiroff, Mariette Strauss, Lisa Egan Woods and Yha Mourhia Wright. Production team includes Ana Maria Aburto (scenic,) Roejendra Adams (costumes,) Sophie Talmadge Silleck (lights,) and Nigel Harsch (sound.)
