Live Cinema: Measure for Measure — Shakespeare

  • Gesa Power House Theatre 111 North 6th Avenue Walla Walla, WA, 99362 United States (map)

When a young novice nun is compromised by a corrupt official, who offers to save her brother from execution in return for sex, she has no idea where to turn for help. When she threatens to expose him, he tells her that no one would believe her. Although Shakespeare wrote this play in the early 1600s, it remains astonishingly resonant today. Artistic Director Gregory Doran directs this new production.

Filmed during a live event, the Live Cinema Series broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with incredibly detailed close-ups of the performers. The Live Cinema Series is sponsored in part by Shakespeare Walla Walla.

This program has an approximate runtime of 3 hours.
