“A play that, though written four hundred years ago, might have been written for the era of #MeToo.” – The New Yorker
Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Janet Zarish
Running in rotating repertory with Native Son, Shakespeare’s strikingly current play speaks powerfully about impossible moral choices in the story of the devout novice Isabella, whose faith is tested when her brother is sentenced to death for impregnating Juliet out of wedlock. When the outwardly virtuous leader Angelo propositions Isabella in exchange for his release, she must consider whether upholding her holy vows is worth her innocent brother’s life.
