Project Description

“Some rise by sin and others by virtue fall.”

BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE | DIRECTED BY KYLER TAUSTIN

Massachusetts: August 9-25 | Delmarva: August 29-September 22

Free Outdoor Shakespeare returns with political tragicomedy Measure for Measure. What happens when corruption reaches the highest level of court? Explore the price of principle, and witness what happens when the law is bent by those who serve to uphold it. A duke in disguise leaves the fate of his people in the hands of a ruthless judge. A loyal sister is faced with an important decision: save the life of her brother, or uphold her honor? Join us for Shakespeare’s timeless tale of deception, virtue, and honor, and decide for yourself whether justice is served. 

Enjoy the bard under the stars!

All Measure for Measure performances are free, outdoors, and open to all audiences; no tickets are needed. Lawn seating, blankets and lawn chairs welcome.

Funding for Brown Box Theater Project’s 2019 free Shakespeare tour of Measure for Measure is provided in part by the Maryland State Arts Council, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Worcester County Arts Council, Fall River Cultural Council, Webster Cultural Council, and Somerset County Arts Council – organizations dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where the arts thrive.
