NU Theatre presents Measure for Measure

In Announcements, by , on January 23rd, 2023

Decadent Vienna is in turmoil after decades of societal upheaval, and the Duke has abruptly gone AWOL, leaving his faithful deputy, Angelo, in charge. Determined to put an end to moral corruption, Angelo decides to restore order, using an iron fist to uphold repressive laws. When a young man is sentenced to death, his sister Isabella pleads to Angelo for her brother’s life. Angelo then puts Isabella in an untenable position, hypocritically subverting his own Puritanical rules in the process.

Thurs.Feb. 237:00pm
  Fri.Feb. 247:30pm
  Sat.Feb. 252:00pm & 7:30pm
