The Duke absconds, leaving the idealist, Angelo, to govern. His near-immediate condemnation of the guilty, but virtuous Claudio to death sparks a study of morality, power, and corruption, as Angelo squares off against Claudio's virtuous sister Isabella, and the scheming Mariana. Experience an absurdly hilarious and viciously satirical Measure for Measure that collaborates with Shakespeare for a fresh, relevant, and contemporary production, while still paying reverence to the original.

"The Coterie" began as a group of artists wanting to develop a more immediate and informed relationship with Shakespeare's texts. Our goal with this, our first production, is to both entertain and inspire audiences and fellow artists by challenging and interrogating the use and relevance of classical works in modern performance.
