Fredericton / Calendar / Bard in the Barracks: Measure for Measure
Barracks Square
463 Queen Street
Fredericton, NB

2019 brings you two of Shakespeare's great plays: Measure for Measure and A Midsummer Nights Dream

Exciting site-specific outdoor productions of the works of William Shakespeare in Fredericton. 

Measure for Measure, Shakespeare’s “problem comedy,” is an enigmatic tale wrought from the materials of tragedy, offering a frank and remarkably contemporary treatment of love and lust, gender and power, and the inscrutable complexities of the human heart.

As the Duke of Vienna leaves town he puts his strict deputy, Angelo, on a collision course with his own desires when Isabella, a young nun, pleads for her condemned brother’s life.

As Angelo falls for her and makes a scandalous proposition, Isabella refuses his advances and precipitates a crisis that the scheming and manipulative Duke steps in to help her resolve – but in ways that make us question his own motives.
