Measure for Measure is Shakespeare's most provocative and paranoiac play, a portrait of a city in turmoil thanks to its citizens' unruly desires and its rulers' oppressive hypocrisy. It is a play about the justice system that questions the very basis of how we judge others; a play about lust and love whose characters constantly fail to tell the difference between the two; and a play where characters' lives are lost and found in the intersection of religion, politics, and sex. In short, it's a play most assuredly about us, and one that will be well-served by a dystopian production design that, like all imagined dystopias, lets us reflect on our world and its anxieties through a defamiliarizing lens.
