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.
