Vienna has grown out of control, over-run by brothels, illegal alcohol and organised crime.
Failing at his job, the Duke authorises his no-nonsense, strait-laced deputy, Angelo, to clean
up the city while he hides out disguised as a Friar, to try and learn more about his people.
But when Angelo finds himself lusting after a young novice nun, Isabella,
his own morality is put in question, in ways he never thought possible.
For the first time in the event's 28 year history, Shakespeare Under the Stars presents his brilliant
black comedy, MEASURE FOR MEASURE, that invites us all to question
the corrupting nature of absolute power and the value of mercy.
"'Tis one thing to be tempted, another thing to fall."
Under the direction of Terri Brabon, Shakespeare Under the Stars continues to
bring together a stellar cast of North Queensland's best including Brendan O'Connor as Angelo,
Emma Lamberton as Isabella, and recent NIDA Graduate and Bridge Alumni, Harlee Timms as the Duke.
With a spectacular lighting design by Jamie Schmidt, Shakespeare Under the Stars 2023 will take you
back 100 years to the jazz age - so toss on your flapper dress and get set to roar like it's 1923!
