MEASURE FOR MEASURE

October 21-November 27, 2022

CST's Courtyard Theater

by William Shakespeare
directed by Henry Godinez

“Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall” in Shakespeare’s searing examination of political corruption and social injustice. Celebrated director Henry Godinez sets the play in the turbulence of 1959 Cuba, during the pivotal moments before Fidel Castro seizes power. When the city sinks into moral disrepair, the Duke stages his departure and yields power to Lord Angelo. The Duke’s deputy wastes no time reviving an ancient statute of chastity and zealously enforcing his rule upon threat of execution. When the nun Isabella comes to plead for mercy for the life of her condemned brother, the depths of raw power’s depravity are shockingly revealed.
