September 13, 2004 Poor Players update
Maesure for Measure is an odd play. It’s called one of Shakespeare’s “problem plays” because “the resolution of the themes and debates seems inadequate, and in the final act the deliverance of justice and completion one expects does not occur.” I really liked this kind of “uncertain ending” and I’ll have to keep an eye out for his other problem plays.

Earlier that day I saw two guys with trash bags full of bottles and cans from an apartment dumpster climb into their Jaguar and drive off.
