Austin Shakespeare, in collaboration with the Harry Ransom Center, presents a staged reading of a new verse translation of Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, which was commissioned by the Play On! Series of Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

Presented for one night only, this version of Measure for Measure was translated into modern English by Aditi Kapil. It is one of 39 plays in the Play On! Series, which invited diverse voices to translate Shakespeare’s works into contemporary language.

After the show, Oregon Shakespeare Festival Associate Producer Taylor Bailey will host an audience “Talk Back” session.
