Measure for Measure - “Complexity of the human psyche”

http://pacifictheatre.org/season/2013-2014-season/mainstage/measure-for-measure
Last week I had a chance to see Shakespeare's Measure for Measure at Vancouver's Pacific Theatre (a guest production by theatre company the Honest Fishmongers).

The play gives a glimpse a into the struggle of morality, personally and socially, illustrating the tensions of mercy and justice on the context of community, leadership and the search for morality.

As one of the actors described, the play switches from low comedy to a darker tone, reflecting the volatile reality of life moment to moment - “the complexity of the human psyche.” This play speaks wonderfully to the unpredictability of the human experience, and how we can find meaning and hope in the midst of that complexity.

It runs for another week, so if you get the chance, see it!
