Measure for Measure
Directed by Michael J. Arndt
Measure for Measure, is believed to have been written around 1603, and is still considered a comedy, which can be misleading. It is also considered a particularly "dark" comedy for its bitterness and cynicism. Also called Shakespeare’s problem play, it brings up a difficulty and then seeks to solve it. The play deals with issues of mercy, justice, and truth and their relationship to pride and humility. Characters act on their beliefs and never really consider the options. A typical convention for Shakespeare, the play is filled with secret identities and a lot of manipulation.
