Measure for Measure

1st Stage Theatre
1524 Spring Hill Road McLean

In Measure for Measure, Shakespeare's striking, gritty and yet somehow comedic drama, sex and politics collide, sparking the tale of a young woman who's forced to choose between her own principles and her brother's life, following an unplanned pregnancy in the wake of a ban on all pre-wedded sexual shenanigans. But just how far will she really go to save his life? Shakespeare's works are famous for countless reasons, including the fact that they remain relevant even though they were written during a time when women weren't allowed to perform them. Well, now The Britches and Hose Shakespeare Company spins that archaic time on its head with its own gender-blind productions, in which men and women play the male and female parts indiscriminately. Don't miss Measure for Measure when it comes to 1st Stage, and be sure to wander the space before or after the show, as it houses some intriguing art installations.
