by William Shakespeare

directed by Jessica Burr


A young leader, determined to purify society of sexual corruption, finds himself at the mercy of his lust for a nun. She is forced to choose between her brother’s life and her morality. Wickedly comic, unbearably raw and strangely tender, MEASURE for MEASURE exposes the chaos of a society as it fights for love beneath a repressive regime. blessed unrest’s focused adaptation and physically dynamic approach rips the heart out of the play and ignites Shakespeare’s language in order to expose, in the most intimate way, what makes these people tick.
