Years ago, Vienna was a place where the people were pure and the city was clean and beautiful. Fast forward to today and you find a gritty, dark world filled with sex, drugs, and debauchery. To bring it back to the glory that it once was, the Duke leaves a pure man, Angelo, in charge to right the sexual wrongs he has let slide for so long. Temptation prevails, however, when a smart, beautiful, and outspoken nun touches Angelo and he offers to save her brother’s life only if she will sleep with him. Measure for Measure is a play that explores sex and power and the interplay between the two.
What we need:
The production's gritty contemporary New York City setting brings all of Shakespeare's themes and characters into the present day, reminding viewers of how vital these words still are. This is where you come in! Without money all we have is ourselves. We need the funds to buy everything that will bring this story to thrilling life as you've never seen it before. We need props ranging from a head in a bag, to a riding crop, to an axe! The costumes we're looking for include apparel for men of the cloth and dominatrix's. And our environment needs graffiti, lots of graffiti!
