"Measure for Measure"

This event occurs weekly on Friday and Saturday.
“Measure for Measure” is unique amongst Shakespeare’s catalogue of work: It is a Dark-Comedy. It deals with serious issues; but, unlike the tragedies where everyone dies in the end, in this story the lovers come together.
This new adaptation of the play is set during the Regency Era, and the characters and the dialogue are similar to those you might find in a Jane Austen novel.
The Duke is unmarried, but has an exemplary heir and assistant in his distant cousin, Angelo. But is Angelo all he seems to be? Duke Vincentio devises a plan to find out. He gives Angelo his own dukely authority while Vincentio pretends to leave the country on political business. Instead the Duke disguises himself as a priest both to walk among the people and to keep an eye on Angelo.
