Measure for Measure [Virtual Reading]

ON DEMAND MAR 1-14

A tale of an overreaching government handing out capital punishment from a self-created moral high ground, with a dash of sexual harassment. It’s no wonder Measure for Measure is still one of the most discussed of Shakespeare’s plays. Aditi Brennan Kapil brings her genius to bear on this modern-verse translation.

Written by William Shakespeare
in a modern verse translation by playwright Aditi Brennan Kapil
directed by Jessica Kubzansky
February 27, 4PM PT

This virtual reading was offered in partnership with Play On Shakespeare.

If you missed this event, never fear! A recording will be available in the coming days.
