Sit on the steps at the base of the Prison Ship Martyrs Monument to watch William Shakespeare's Measure for Measure.

Shakespeare's dark comedy examines the danger of placing power in the wrong hands. The Duke of Vienna's puritanical deputy Angelo, tasked with cleaning up a city out of control, revives ancient laws regarding sex and marriage. When he unjustly sentences the young gentleman Claudio to death, Claudio's sister Isabella pleads his case and discovers that Angelo is not as virtuous as he seems. 

Kids & the Classics
Stop by 30 minutes before the show for Kids & the Classics. Designed for children ages four to 12, Kids & the Classics give children a chance to interact with the text by previewing the characters and situations, and creating links between the text and their own lives through theatre games and close reading of text.
