“Some rise by sin and others by virtue fall.”

Free outdoor Shakespeare returns with political tragicomedy Measure for Measure. What happens when corruption reaches the highest level of court? Explore the price of principle, and witness what happens when the law is bent by those who serve to uphold it. A duke in disguise leaves the fate of his people in the hands of a ruthless judge. A loyal sister is faced with an important decision: save the life of her brother, or uphold her honor? Join us for Shakespeare’s timeless tale of deception, virtue, and honor, and decide for yourself whether justice is served.
