  • Measure for Measure


    Measure for Measure is a comedic and dramatic play framed around the false departure of a Vincentio, Duke of Vienna. Vincentio remains in his city disguised as a simple friar in order to assess the qualities of his stern judge, Angelo. The play also deals with a number of interwoven romances and the entanglements that result therefrom, as well as following the thread of the duplicitous and unjust Angelo's attempts to usurp Vincentio's authority.
