The Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company returns to The Sauk for their fourth annual visit. This year with Shakespeare's lesser known play Measure for Measure. When the Duke of Vienna mysteriously leaves his post, his deputy Angelo is left in charge of the city. Angelo sets about enforcing strict morality laws that have previously been ignored. When a young man named Claudio is arrested because his fiancee is expecting before their wedding, Claudio's sister, Isabella, comes to plead for mercy for her brother. Meanwhile, the Duke observes all the events in his city by taking on a disguise. Shakespeare's dark comedy explores hypocrisy and judgement in a production directed by Aili Huber, who has previously directed Pigeon Creek's critically acclaimed productions of Richard IIIAntony and Cleopatra and Much Ado About Nothing.
