Shakespeare's Measure for Measure- Adaptation by Anne Brashier
Measure 4 Measure was such a fun experience. This was the first piece of interactive theater that I have worked on. Working with Anne and the other ladies in the play was a creative and collaborative process. We created and explored all of the characters together. We walked into the unknown with this play as it was set up as an experimental card game where the audience played the character Juliette. At the end of the game Juliette must decide if she will save herself, or the other characters in the play. Watching the audience make this choice was always so fun. It was a moment to realize people's true motivations as they walk through the world. Is someone totally selfless and not thinking of their own self interest? Or is someone methodically walking through life, of course taking in the needs of others, but really looking out for number one? Then having to be faced at looking at myself internally and asking myself what my own motivations are.
This play was truly a Fringe Experience. Literally doing the play outside in the park on benches. I can now say I have done it all. Small intimate settings to 4,000 seat theaters. I am so proud to be an artist and be able to do this with my life.
