BARE THEATRE BRINGS UNIQUE BRAND OF SHAKESPEARE TO VARSITY
The Wherefore: Shakespeare in Raleigh series makes a stop
in Tar Heel country

Bare Theatre continues its tenth season with its 21st Shakespeare title ­ the comedy, Measure for Measure. Though the play is chocked full of humor and innuendo, it is referred to as a comedy by Renaissance standards because it does not have a tragic ending.

Measure for Measure is anything but dated, however. Often cited as one of Shakespeare’s “problem plays,” it examines moral questions that reveal the famed playwright was very much ahead of his time. Measure deals with very contemporary themes of sex and desire, and raises questions about the separation of church and state ­ taboo during the Renaissance.
