Measure for Measure

Written by William Shakespeare

Directed by Katherine Hosie ‘22 and Charlotte Thiel ‘22

As the Duke of Vienna’s power wanes, he instructs deputy Angelo to rule in his place. Pious and lawful but tempted by desire, Angelo sets novice nun Isabella a deadly bargain: her chastity, or her brother’s life?

Written by Anne Carson

Directed by Paige Allen ‘21

In this radical translation of Sophkles’ Antigone, Anne Carson breathes new poetic life into the ancient tragedy of a girl who risks her life to stand up to injustice. Antigone’s actions shake the foundations of her family and her city in a conflict of governmental law and personal ethics that still speaks to us today.
