November 1 – November 20, 2016
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Patricia McGregor
Measure for Measure is one of Shakespeare’s richest plays, mixing comedy and drama in a thrilling story of love and power. In a decadent Vienna, the strict, newly appointed leader Angelo wants to rid the city of moral decay—until he falls for a young nun pleading for the life of her brother and things get complicated. Justice, lust, hypocrisy, and redemption take center stage along with a wild cast of characters in a bold staging of this timely classic.

Norris Foundation, Maggie Acosta and Larry Shushan, Michael T. Turner and Suzanne Poet Turner, and The County of San Diego. Financial support for The Old Globe is provided by The City of San Diego.
