Pre-show Discussion for Measure for Measure

Measure for Measure is one of Shakespeare’s most remarkable plays. It is dark and disturbing, and characters have very difficult choices to make. The Duke leaves town, leaving Angelo in charge, a man seemingly upright and moral, until he confronts a young nun, Isabel. Her brother is going to be executed for fornication with his beloved (and very pregnant) fiancée. There is one way that Isabel can save her brother, but at the cost of her soul.

We offer this two-hour pre-show discussion. To round out your package, you can also buy a ticket to the performance, plus a ticket to the optional post-show discussion (another $10) on Monday morning. Synopsis and discussion is led by Robin Williams and the director, Caryl Farkas. The post-show event will include several actors.

So there are three events in this package; you can buy tickets for one, two, or three of the events, as you wish.
