Shakespeare in the Park - Measure for Measure
August 7, 2011
After a two-year hiatus, the celebrated New England Shakespeare Company returns!
Against the spectacular view of the Boston skyline from Robbins Farm Park in Arlington, NESF will perform Measure for Measure, Shakespeare's sublimely dark comedy, a classic morality tale on the themes of human frailty, sin and hypocrisy. The play blends comic contractions and ambiguities with biting social comentary. Join us for this humorous exploration of blind justice, mercy, and the tension between good and evil that resides within every human soul.
Audience members are invited to come early, bring a blanket or picnic supper. Desserts and drinks will be available for purchase.
Thanks to our generous sponsors; the performance is free, but donations are suggested and much appreciated. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Arlington Cultural Council, a local agency, which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
