A performance of Shakespeare’s “Measure for Measure” will be shown on Sept. 4 during the live cinema series screening at Gesa Power House Theatre.

Live Cinema Series screening of Shakespeare’s “Measure for Measure” will be from 6-9 p.m. Sept. 4 at Gesa Power House Theatre, 111 N. Sixth Ave.

The show is a production of The Royal Shakespeare Company, filmed live in England and rebroadcast internationally to select screens.  

When a young novice nun is compromised by a corrupt official, who offers to save her brother from execution in return for sex, she has no idea where to turn for help. 

When she threatens to expose him, he tells her that no one would believe her. Although Shakespeare wrote the play in the early 1600s, it remains resonant today. 

Artistic Director Gregory Doran directs this new production.

Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theater.
