“The Year of Shakespeare” will kick off with William Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure and opening night will be November 11th. The performances will be set in the round in the Phil Tarro Theatre.
This rarely performed tragi-comedy explores the wages of sin, religion, and justice in a world filled with brothels and loose ethics. Slapstick comedy from the morally skewed townsfolk is set against a deadly serious plea to save convicted brother’s life. Will power corrupt a pious leader? Will a brother lose his head?
Performances are November 11, 12, 17, 18, 19 at 7:30 pm; and November 20 at 2 pm. Tickets through www.mcintyrehall.org .
